Help the Houk Family Replace Their Home

On September 8th, the Houks (Vanessa, Jason, Madison and Grace) lost their family home and all of their belongings in the Almeda fire. They need help in replacing their house and essential items for work, school, and daily life. Vanessa and Jason have spent their lives serving the larger community. They have volunteered countless hours organizing and serving meals to the most vulnerable in our community, providing winter shelters for those in the cold, and fighting for basic human rights for those on the margins. Now they need our help. It is our turn to dig deep and give generously to help them replace some of what they have lost.  The Houks are now homeless with limited resources. They need our support now. Please give generously!
