Community Partnership with the Houston Tool Bank
The first HHR community tool bank was established in Canyon Gate, a neighborhood in Katy, TX made up of 720 single family homes, all of which were completely devastated by flooding caused as a result of Hurricane Harvey. Tools entrusted to us by the Houston Tool Bank are checked out to residents in this community at no charge to them.
While HHR wishes it was able to help rebuild for all those in need, the devastation in our area was so widespread that it is impossible to do so. It is our hope that these tools, paired with the community skills training classes held by HHR, will give homeowners the confidence and ability to take on projects of their own. If you are interested in attending a trade skills training class, please see our training page.
If you would like your community considered for a community tool bank, please email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org
