Thanks to all of the great people at Wesley Community Center for including us in their "Strengthening Families Breakfast"!

We were entertained by The Children of Wesley, had some delicious food and heard some very informative speeches from Diana Garbis and Lucretia Jelks from Wesley Community Center and former Harris County Sheriff and Wesley Alum (as well as former Greater Northside Chamber Board Member), Adrian Garcia!

Wesley is providing some much needed and valuable services within our Community for citizens ranging in age from 4 months old to 96 years old and everyone in between. For more information about Wesley and to, perhaps, make a donation and/or volunteer your time, please visit them at Their Website .

We can assure you that it will be time/money well spent!
