Harvey Relief Update
We are so grateful for the abundant support we have received since our last update!
Generation One re-opened school today, September 5th. We are excited to have most of our kids back to school and to host a short day-program for our elementary kids until HISD re-opens.
Update on the Daniels Family. Thank you so much for your quick response! ALL immediate physical needs have been met.
A few of our staff have been affected. One of our staff, who is a single mom lost her car due to flooding. We are looking for a car for her family to use in the interim. The water at Mike Malkemes' home is receding, although it will be a while before they can return home for good. We will be collecting any grocery store gift cards to bless our families and staff affected by Harvey.
The best way Generation One can serve our community is by continuing to provide our Early Childhood Education programs to our 62 families. Our methodology and curriculums already address Adverse Childhood Experiences (To learn more about ACE's, listen to this TED Talk), and now this is even more crucial because of the catastrophic events our entire city is reeling from, especially in our Generation One children.
Continuing to keep our operations running is the best support you can provide our families. Many of our development events were postponed or cancelled for the remaining days in August and September, so we are looking for your immediate support for our programs.

Barbecue with our families? We are gathering our families together next week, Thursday, September 14th for a re-scheduled (due to Harvey) Open House. We'll be able to assess additional needs and come together as a community as we again start the school year. Would you be willing to help sponsor this event? Email Claire Barber here if you are interested in sponsoring this event.
Thank you for your continued support and for your quick response so far! God is moving in the City of Houston in some big ways and we are so grateful to be a part of it.
The Generation One Team
Update on the Volunteer Base Camp in Alvin. There is a growing volunteer base camp in Alvin that is reaching hundreds of people by mudding-out their homes. Many out of state teams have been able to setup in their camp, providing much needed relief to some currently under-resourced but heavily impacted areas, including: Alvin, Friendswood, and Dickinson.
