Habitat Funding -- Only $11,126 to Go!
"Make a family's dream come true for the 22nd time. In 1998, the Houston Bar Association partnered with Habitat for Humanity to provide safe, affordable housing for hardworking Houston families. Since then, 21 families have been served, we have raised over $1.25 million in monetary donations, and thousands of Houstonians have volunteered.  
Please join us in this year's campaign!"
- Ryan Wooten,
HBA Habitat for Humanity Committee Co-Chair
