Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief Effort
Hurricane Harvey has devastated the Texas and Louisiana gulf coast. This storm which initially made landfall in Rockport, Texas has displaced many families and claimed lives due to extreme winds and record rainfalls. Houston, Texas received approx 50 inches of rain which caused extreme flooding . Catastrophic inland flooding is ongoing in the Greater Houston metropolitan area, and Diamond Footprints along with hundreds of organizations are in place to help individuals with obtaining some sense of normality as the Houston community rebuilds. Help us as we provide support for our youth and their families to get them back on track for success. This campaign will be ongoing as we assist families throughout the holidays and for the remainder of the school year.
Diamond Footprints Youth Spotlight
There are so many negative images and stories of our youth floating around in the news and social media, but we recognize that there are more positive stories that get overlooked for ratings and other reasons. Our children deserve to be celebrated and recognized for their hard work and for achieving unimaginable goals during their adolescence. If you know someone that fits this description, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and send us a picture and brief summary about them. Self nominations are welcome as well, so please feel free to toot your own horn. Nominations will be reviewed monthly by the Diamond Footprints staff members.
