Check out Donkeemom’s newest mural

Potential development in EaDo from the Hay Center

The HAY Center, a program under Harris County Protective Services for Children and Adults, is being considered for grants that would allow the center to construct a 50-unit housing complex at 3131 Gulf Freeway for youths aging out of foster care with onsite supportive services. A virtual public participation meeting will be held on December 17th at 6 p.m. via Zoom.
