Since 2010, Horizon Outreach has actively collaborated with the Harris Health System, Department of Veteran Affairs and local service providers to host Annual Outreach seminars. These seminars are held at local community centers and our office. They serve as a portal to connect homeless families to housing, healthcare, food, clothing and other resources. Our first Outreach Seminar was held within 3 months of the organization being founded and had over 312 participants. Of this number, 121 were veterans. Some people walked 5 blocks or more to attend the event!!!
Our tremendous outreach efforts earned us a Certificate of Congressional Recognition from U.S. Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee.
Harris Health System has provided the following services at each of these Seminars:
- Free Medical Screenings
- Flu Shots
- Affordable Care Act – Healthcare Education
- Distribution of Toiletry Items
- Medical/Dental Van Services
Other services provided:
- Resume Writing Workshops
- Thanksgiving Meal/Food Distributed
- Free Haircut’s
- Interview Clothing
- Credit Workshops
- Housing/Rental Assistance
Hats off to our community partners who help make this event a success each year!!!!
