A big shout out and thank you to Houston City Councilmember Dr. Carolyn Evans Shabazz.
It was just last week when Elaine Canizales, a single mother, reached out to me on Tuesday saying she was evicted. Canizales said she and her family would soon be on the streets. I felt bad and had no idea what to tell her.
But #LookAtGod… The very next day Pastor James Nash called me and said Dr. Shabazz was looking to help someone who lives in her district who may need rental assistance. It just so happens Elaine lives in Dr. Shabazz’s city council district. I got them together and as of this morning Elaine’s back rent has been paid along with next month by Bishop James Dixon.
I’m so glad things worked out. Unfortunately, those were the only funds available and I know thousands of others need help. But for now at least this family isn’t on the streets. #WontHeDoIt
