Shield Bearer, a 501c3 nonprofit charity and a lead agency in the movement for healthy marriages, families, and communities, provides counseling, education, and prevention programs to thousands in the community each year. Executive Director Roy Wooten stated, “Our work with human trafficking survivors, victims of crime and abuse, and veterans and their families is only possible because of support from the community. Many individuals and families are in desperate need of services and cannot afford to pay for them. When you support Shield Bearer, you give hope and healing to these families.”

Event sponsors included Halford Busby Construction Consultants, Klein Funeral Homes and Memorial Parks, Insurance One, and Community Impact Newspaper. Associate Director Melissa Rotholz stated, “This event would not have been possible without our sponsors and the many local individuals and businesses that donated auction items. Every donation furthers the mission of strengthening and uniting families here in Houston and surrounding areas.”

Shield Bearer currently has five locations in the Houston area including Cy-Fair, Tomball, Cypress Station, and Montgomery County. Interested volunteers are encouraged to attend an upcoming free community breakfast held on the first Tuesday of each month at 12340 Jones Rd. Ste 290, Houston, TX 77077 at 9am.
