Lake Houston Family YMCA Recovers After Harvey Devastation
Lake Houston Family YMCA will host a ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday, June 11 at its newly-reconstructed facility after closing its doors to the community in late 2017 due to water damage from Hurricane Harvey. Thanks to foundations, companies and community donors, the YMCA raised $14 million to aid renovation and restoration.
This location, prior to Harvey, was integral to the surrounding neighborhood; providing a place to call home and members and staff that were truly like families in the community. The YMCA hosted a soft reopening in March to allow members to utilize the space as soon as possible.
11 a.m. – 1 p.m. Tuesday, June 11
