Rebuilding our village


 At a time such as this, it is easy for us to be discouraged. Don't be!   ***  COMING SOON: A group of Houston's own non-profits @thetroubledmovement @branchxhouston @newperspectived as well as community individuals have come together to begin planning a #HoustonAfterHarvey Recovery Project. We realize there are still emergency situations that need to be done and we are keeping everyone in prayer, but we would like to be proactive in planning for Houston's return from this storm.   ***   Only if you are able, gather any clothes, shoes, canned goods, and small furniture you no longer need or use. Hold on to them for further instruction. A date and location has not yet been determined but will be announced.   #HoustonAfterHarvey #RecoveryProject #NPD #TTM #BranchHouston #TheTroubledMovementInc #HurricaneHarvey #Houston #TheComeback #Community #Collaboration #Support #Louisiana #HoustonFloods #RebuildingHouston #HoustonNonProfits #SupportTheVillage #BeABranch #PersevereThroughAdversity

our project mission

The Troubled Movement, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in Houston, Texas will be collaborating with other black-owned non-profits, New Perspective Development and B.R.A.N.C.H Houston to plan and host a #HoustonAfterHarvey Recovery Project. We are asking for any monetary/gift cards or in-kind donations that you can provide. Monetary donations will be used for toiletries, household items, and gift cards. Please click here for a list of items that we are collecting.

Our mission is to adopt families that have lost everything during this storm. We will individually set up drop-off locations around the City of Houston and distribute items beginning with the list of families, children, and individuals who have reached out to us.

We are determined to get out into the community as we’ve been doing and help rebuild our city, starting with the people. We are asking you to support the village and be a branch to others. Your donation is greatly appreciated. We are also accepting volunteers to help us run this project smoothly.

 Thank you again for being a blessing during this time!

 New Perspective Development took form in a time of systematic unrest and discrimination that was/is being reflected into today’s society. The visionary, Quentin Thompson, felt that there should be a safe place where like-minded individuals could come together and share their feelings, emotions, and thoughts about what was going on around us. A place where an opinion would be respected and heard with love and sometimes constructive criticism. The group chat, People of Perspective (POP) was created for an outlet and refuge of the open-minded.  Quentin begin inviting people he thought had a thirst of knowledge and/or the discipline to learn new perspectives on the events taking place in our world. Before he knew it, the chat had grown to almost 100 people.   Click  here  to learn more about New Perspective Development!
