Committed to a brighter future for children, neighbors and communities.

We consider a healthy neighborhood to be one that is safe, clean, and diverse; one in which it makes economic sense for people to invest and one where neighbors manage change successfully.

“What a blessing to have running water again!”

That is the most common response we hear from our clients who participated in our Freeze Repair Program. All across our city, homeowners were left with plumbing issues from the February freeze that exceeded their ability to have them repaired. Without the means to repair their plumbing, many were forced to temporarily relocate or try and navigate living in a home without water. It’s hard to fathom what it would be like to live in a home where no water came out of the faucets and the toilet wouldn’t flush. You can imagine the joy our clients felt when we were able to assist them with their plumbing needs. With help from local partners, we were able to repair broken pipes for 28 local homes that were left without water.

While freeze repair is something new to Grassroots, we have continued to serve our community with our Roof Repair and Bounce programs year after year. This summer we had over 200 volunteers work on exterior home repairs and roof replacements throughout the city. They were able to serve 27 local families with repairs they could not have otherwise made to their homes. One of our clients was able to get assistance with his plumbing and then during our summer Bounce program, volunteers blessed him with a new roof.

Our commitment to seeing a brighter future for children, neighbors, and communities is what drives us to serve those in need within our community.

Last Friday was a busy time of celebratory events in East Waco. JH Hines hosted a Muffins for Moms event, where over 100 moms, grandmothers, aunties, sisters, and mother figures attended. Community partners and other volunteers also showed up to support this effort.
At the same time, just across West Waco Drive, was the Groundbreaking Ceremony for the new GW Carver Middle School. Alumni, current students and staff, public officials,Waco ISD, residents and other community members gathered for this historical event. We enjoyed being able to participate and support these exciting moments.
