Houston Parks Board is proud to be a Communities of Care grantee, a grant program of the Hogg Foundation for Mental Health that supports the Healthy Outdoor Communities (HOC) initiative. HOC is a collaborative approach to improve mental well-being and combat health disparities in areas of need in Houston. Over the course of five years, Houston Parks Board is working with Nature and Eclectic Outdoors (NEO), Texas A&M School of Public Health, local outdoor and health nonprofits, and community members, on programmatic solutions to systemic barriers to park access and health inequities.
Our areas of focus are the communities of Acres Homes and Third Ward.
Join HPB Activation and Volunteer Manager Kelly Burnett for a deeper dive about this collaborative initiative and learn more about our commitment to park equity. Guest speaker Jennifer Boley from NEO will join the conversation.
