Beginning at 8 a.m. TOMORROW (Saturday, April 27), members of HPD’s command staff, numerous Houston police officers and volunteers from HPD, along with “Rebuilding Together Houston” (a non-profit organization), will put the finishing touches on a southeast Houston home they have worked throughout the week to repair and rebuild for the Spring 2013 Project.

HPD volunteers have worked at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Douglas Harrison, Jr. at 602 East 42nd.

Among the improvements on the Harrison’s home were the construction of a new wheelchair ramp and replacement of all siding, doors and windows.  Tomorrow, the finishing touches will include a new coat of paint and landscaping around the home. 

A photo of the house prior to the repairs is attached to this media alert.

“Rebuilding Together Houston” has provided home repair services for low-income, elderly, and/or disabled Houston homeowners for more than 25 years. This program assists those physically or financially unable to do the repair themselves.

The on-scene contact for media interviews is HPD Assistant Chief Mark Curran.
