Black History Month is more than just stopping to honor the history, culture and legacy of black people. It is also about understanding the power of representation. Representation has the ability to awaken the spirit of justice within the human soul.
As part of an ongoing effort to help our neighbors affected by Hurricane Harvey, BakerRipley has partnered with the City of Houston and Harris County to offer long-term disaster recovery support and services at BakerRipley community centers as part of the Neighborhood Restoration Program.
We have put in place disaster recovery programs which will be responsive to the needs of our neighbors and we are focused on providing resources to help those in need and to alleviate human suffering caused by the storm.
¡Lánzate Houston!, the first pitch competition conducted entirely in Spanish in Houston, was hosted by BakerRipley’s Entrepreneur Connection Program in partnership with the The City of Houston’s Office of Business Opportunity.
