Revitalize the Spirit of Communities
Rebuilding a community entails rebuilding the very symbols that represent the community. It could be a recreation center, a sports park, a cherished restaurant, or an iconic event space. Rebuilding these places brings a spirit of hope and recovery back to the community. They can also be key to stimulating economic activity in the region – they are part of the reason residents stay in communities they call home, and why tourists want to visit.
The Rebuild Texas Fund is immersing itself in communities, getting to know local leaders and partners, identifying the places that are near and dear to the community’s spirit. We believe that when parks, community centers, and art spaces come back, they will restore a sense of normalcy and hope to the communities that have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
