Dear Near Northside Residents,
WAS YOUR HOME DAMAGED BY HURRICANE IKE?
Registered Architects have volunteered in cooperation with the American Institute of Architects and the City of Houston, to visit your property and survey damages resulting from Hurricane Ike. You will receive a written report to help you negotiate with your insurance company and/or contractors. We will complete damage assessment forms for houses and apartments, but the property owner must request this assistance.
CALL FOR AN APPOINTMENT
713-226-7443 or Toll free 888-388-1885
This is a free, humanitarian service and comes with no obligation to the building owner or the City of Houston.
For additional information on Hurricane Ike recovery, visit the City of Houston homepage www.houstontx.gov.
Homeownership provides a sense of security to families and promotes strong neighborhoods. So, we are proud to announce that as of October 2008, Houston Hope has helped hundreds of families to purchase quality affordable homes in re-energized areas of the city. Houston Hope is Mayor Bill White's initiative to reinvest in several of Houston's historic neighborhoods through a combination of stabilizing activities such as coordination of public safety programs, rehabbing existing homes, providing quality new affordable homes, and improving infrastructure and drainage.
