ADVOCACY ALERT:
"The recent Senate bill includes no money for homelessness and housing, and fails to extend eviction moratoria. People’s lives are at risk if we don’t act now.

Please tell your Members of Congress that the final pandemic stimulus package must protect people experiencing homelessness and the systems that serve them."

The Heart of Texas Homeless Coalition and Waco community has lost a friend. Susan Duecy passed away this past week. Susan was a grant writer and wrote the Homeless Coalition’s CoC grants for several years. She attended Homeless Coalition meetings regularly for the years she was writing our grants. She will be remembered for her kindness and graciousness in addition to her skill with helping organizations like the Homeless Coalition navigate the waters of grant writing. We are grateful to have worked with her and we know that her reputation stretched far beyond the bounds of the Homeless Coalition and into the Waco community and beyond. We wanted to take a moment to share this with you, whether you knew Susan or not, and share a thank you to our friend Susan Duecy. We extend condolences to her family, and we are grateful to have been able to labor alongside Susan in making our community a better place and serving those in need.
