Bryan’s House Thanks DART In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, Bryan’s House – a nonprofit providing medically-managed child care, respite care and community-based, family-centered support services – took in 20 children under age five affected by the Houston-area flooding. “Our agency was determined to meet the need head-on, and in a meaningful way,” Bryan’s House CEO Abigail Erickson said. With DART’s help, Bryan’s House picked up the children daily from the mega-shelter at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center and took them to their facility in East Dallas. The kids spent the day just being kids, and their families received a much-needed break. “We can physically see the relief on their faces each morning as the kids come in, and the moms’ faces as they ride the bus back,” Erickson said. “It’s an amazing transformation given that (these families) spent 14+ days in the mega-shelter, (plus) lost all possessions including cars and household items. “We are so thankful for our incredible partners, whom without your help, we would not have met the need of this group of special babies and kids and their families.” DALLAS AREA RAP MARKETING & COM P.O.
