“Better Together.” That’s TSAE’s motto, and it’s illustrative of the true strengths of associations. We organize, build, strengthen, and rally around our communities in times of need.
Much of the devastation faced by our community will take years to remedy. We’re struggling as a city and surrounding area, and associations are uniquely positioned to leverage the expertise of professionals within their ranks. It’s not just construction or basic volunteer needs; people need help with taxes, medical questions, long term housing, legal difficulties, counseling, insurance, and so much more. Our associations here in Houston cover those areas, and our members can provide valuable assistance to Houstonians facing some of the biggest struggles of their lives.
In the past few weeks, Houston has had relief organizations and volunteers from all over the country here to help. We can’t overstate our gratefulness to those groups, but they have started to leave to return to their own homes or move on to help with other Hurricane efforts. Houstonians helping Houstonians will be what rebuilds this city. Our associations are part of this community, and we’re here for the long term.
