Hi Promise Community School Families!
As a community school, we place importance in making sure our families are connected to resources and information in our community. Throughout the school year, we share a compiled list of resources from BakerRipley and other places in Houston every 1-2 weeks.
These are not always resources that the school district is directly responsible for so we share contact information so that you can follow up with the appropriate people.
This week's resources include information on COVID-19 testing and vaccination, job training programs, pet assistance, and more.
Free COVID-19 Test Locations - LINK HERE
The Houston Health Department and its agency partners are announcing the schedule for sites offering free COVID-19 tests the week of January 25, 2020.
If you are 65+ years old and/or have a disability, call (832) 393-5500 to get details about the sign-up list for COVID-19 vaccinations.
Free Pet Food - LINK HERE
The Houston Humane Society Pet Pantry supports Houston residents in caring for their pets by providing free pet food and supplies to pet owners needing assistance, especially those experiencing financial difficulties due to COVID-19, via the creation of their Pet Pantry programs.
The Pet Pantry programs include offsite community events where you can drive up and get free dog and cat food, and a monthly assistance pet food program.
