Across Houston and the country, many communities struggled this year. With pandemic fatigue, vaccine confusion and compounding natural and economic disasters, we all have faced challenging tests. Our community has risen to each challenge with perseverance and teamwork.

We’re taking time to reflect on all that we have accomplished with the help of our partners this year.

Connective has grown considerably in 2021, with the addition of five new staff members: Melissa Langston, Data Analyst, Elaine Morales, Director of Partnerships & Policy, Kevin Argueta, Program Assistant, Morgan Rodgers, Manager of Communications & Marketing, and Rachel O’Connell, Program Manager.

We’re looking ahead to even more program launches and project announcements in 2022. We’re committed to providing our community and partners with the tools they need to thrive.
