Resurrection MCC is blessed again this year to have beenchosen as a benefiting agency of the 2019 Houston AIDS Walk.This means that nearly 70% of the funds our team raises comesback to Resurrection MCC to financially support those affected by HIV/AIDS. Many of our clients come to us struggling toreceive 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 serviceorganizations. This provides 100,000 Houstonians each year with education, pediatric programs, housing, food, medical care, counseling, and job training.
