Change Starts Here – United Way Campaign Video

The Resource & Crisis Center was honored to be included in this year’s United Way Galveston County Mainland Campaign Video, “Change Starts Here.” A brave young lady who received services from RCC as a child shares her powerful story, along side other community members who have received aid from United Way organizations. Be sure to watch the video to learn more about how the Galveston County community has come together to support our neighbors in their time of need with the help of United Way.

Thank You to All Who Made Casino for a Cause Possible!

The 4th Annual Casino for a Cause event was a huge success! On July 27th, 160 of the Resource & Crisis Center’s supporters gathered together to enjoy good food, casino gaming, and live music, while raising funds for the mission of RCC. The Resource & Crisis Center is thankful for each and every sponsor, guest, and individual who contributed to making this event a success!

Of course, the Resource & Crisis Center would be remiss if we did not acknowledge the generous donations made by individuals and companies to make the Casino for a Cause event possible. The Tremont House generously discounted the use of the Davidson Ballroom and the cost of the talented catering team.

Back to School Drive

Each year, with the help of our community, The Resource and Crisis Center of Galveston County (RCC) provides age appropriate school supplies to the children residing in our shelter.

Sometimes the only difference between an A+ student and a failing student is having basic supplies to do homework and participate in class. Because the children served by RCC live within our shelter and their mothers are trying to rebuild, providing school supplies is the least of their worries.

You can help in several ways…

  • Create a drive and collect new school supplies to donate
  • Make a financial donation to The Resource and Crisis Center
  • Volunteer to help with school supply and uniform inventory and packing backpacks
