Wishing all of our friends, colleagues, and neighbors a happy holiday season. See y'all in 2024!

12/21/2023

On this day, just days away from when many of us will be with family and friends for the holidays, we ask you to join us in remembering the hundreds of Texans who died while experiencing homelessness in 2023.

Tonight is the longest night of the year, enough time to gaze into the stars and pause to think of those who may have been looking into the same heavens earlier this year before passing. We owe our fellow humans that dignity, and today is the day to remember those we too often neglect.

Thank you for taking the time to do this today. May we all work together in the coming year to ensure fewer lives are lost and create brighter futures for all Texans.
