Food Insecurity

We aim to maintain a community-based air monitoring network that provides reliable data to the community and regulatory entities ( City, County, & State) for actionable follow-up monitoring or interventions. Seven monitors are already installed and collecting data in the area.

Community-Led Air Monitoring

An estimated 724,750 food-insecure individuals live in the greater Houston area. Food insecurity is a measure of the availability of food and individuals ability to access it. Affordability is only one factor.

Disaster Preparedness/Recovery

Climate change is more than a phrase or a hot topic in many communities struggling to answer the question of what does equitable disaster recovery mean? Financially struggling communities continue to find themselves at the end of the line waiting on resources and financial relief to assist not only in rebuild efforts but also mitigation projects to prevent future events. Through our partner relationships our goal is to identify and implement long term solutions.

It is through the dedication of people that we really bring light to issues of inequality that lead to disparities of income, long term health consequences, and lack of basic resources. We can make a change together, one ACT at a time.
