Adapting to Changing Times

Although Houston has re-opened many more businesses and public spaces since our last report, SHAPE continues to follow the most cautious guidelines, and we have only partially returned to our regular programs.  During this time, SHAPE has also turned 51 years old!

As we plan for our “new normal,” we are engaging with community stakeholders either virtually or through small socially-distanced gatherings.  Our first meeting included 5 stakeholders who focused on outlining our new organization structure and determining which programs and activities we can sustain.  We will continue to meet every two weeks, or as needed, bringing in additional stakeholders to contribute to the process.

In the meantime, we have maintained meal deliveries to elders, averaging 20-30 meals that we deliver three days a week.  We have also established community outreach that allows us to check in on those who are still primarily home-bound.  In addition, we host “Grab & Go” events at least twice a month and provide groceries, cleaning supplies, youth items and other necessities.  These mass distributions service 300-500 community members.  Additionally, we distribute approximately 100 disposable or reusable masks each week, as supplies last.  

Your generous donations are helping us to ensure that our communities feel safe and supported as we all work through creating some sense of normalcy out of the unknown.  We are excited to continue working with you and our stakeholders to carry on a legacy of service.
