Resurrection MCC is blessed again this year to have been chosen as a benefiting agency of the 2017 Houston AIDS Walk. This means that nearly 70% of the funds our team raises comes back to Resurrection MCC to financially support those affected by HIV/AIDS. Many of our clients come to us struggling to receive all the support they need from agencies in our area. With your help, we are able to assist with rent, utilities, and other expenses.
Proceeds from AIDS Walk Houston also benefit AIDS Foundation Houston and several other local HIV/AIDS service organizations. This provides 100,000 Houstonians each year with education, pediatric programs, housing, food, medical care, counseling, and job training.
