Austin organization responds to help Hill Country

AUSTIN — After the terrifying and destructive set of storms that ravaged homes and communities over the weekend in Central Texas, leaving at least 1,000 people displaced and 400 homes damaged, Circle of Health International (COHI) will be responding in assisting with the recovery needs of female-headed households.
As a Central Texas-based organization, COHI will also provide individuals impacted with psychological first aid and trauma care. More storms are predicted in the coming weeks, and with the current conditions it is likely that many more will find themselves impacted.

I too am in agreement that it was not pleasant to see San Marcos High School ranked as one of the bottom five Austin area high schools by the organization “Children at Risk,” as written by Don Moore in Sunday’s San Marcos Daily Record, dated May 24, 2015.

A heartfelt thank you

Editor,
Quickly rising water in the early morning hours of Sunday, May 24th, necessitated evacuation from our San Marcos community. Calvary Church provided temporary shelter for our residents, families and team. Hays Nursing and Rehab Center generously offered their building as a temporary home until transport to our New Braunfels communities could be facilitated.  Hays ISD graciously assisted in transport.
