VOLUNTEER of the MONTH - October ... Rican McGusty ... our favorite DJ has such a big heart. One of the many things he does, is to see to it that our residents are treated with dignity and respect - even our little girls. Last year pre-covid, he and his friends escorted our young girls to a "father / daughter dance" at their school ... These girls may not have a father in their life - but they did not want them to miss out on this dance. They showed up with Corsages and made these girls feel so special.

Thank you Rican for your thoughtfulness and for always putting our residents at the top of your list! #HopeInHouston #WeLoveOurVolunteers
