A message from the mayor I am a big supporter of City of Houston employees because each one of you has a big heart and cares about your co-workers. We are like a family, and we take pride in our work and the services we provide. We care about our loved ones, friends, neighborhoods, and our communities. Every day, we continue to adjust to the difficulties of the COVID-19 pandemic — wearing masks, social distancing, canceled vacations and trips to see loved ones. But one thing remains the same: and that is your compassion. Each year, time and again, you show the City of Houston and its surrounding areas just how thoughtful, how generous, and how invested you are in the environment in which you live and work. Just a few years ago, despite Hurricane Harvey, we pledged nearly $1 million to the CMC. Last year, during one of the most challenging years any of us has ever faced — a year where we could not gather as we normally do — we still pledged nearly three-quarters of a million dollars to aid the less fortunate, those on the frontlines, and those working behind the scenes to ensure the health and well-being of our most vulnerable. The 2022 campaign is upon us. I ask you again to show just how much you care because I know that you do. Support one of the restructured department food sale fundraisers; grab a foursome and sign up for the golf tournament fundraiser; take advantage of new and gently used items in our annual online auction. If you are led to give through your paycheck, sign up through Employee Self Service by October 31, 2021. Did you know that if we all give just $2 per paycheck, we can raise $1 million? It is that simple. Our 200-member Above & Beyond Club comprises employees who commit to giving 1% or more of their salaries to the campaign. Should you choose also to donate 1% of your salary, you would be in good company. I care. You care. COH Cares.

Sylvester Turner Mayor

Want to know how a charity spends its money but are afraid to ask? Don’t be. Donors care about the community they live in. That’s why they participate in the CMC. So it only makes sense that they also want to know how their money will be spent. Most agencies post financial information for donors on their websites. A list of CMC charities with links to their sites can be found at www. houstoncmc.org. An informed donor makes smart choices. Here are some websites that will help you learn more about giving: Federal Trade Commission Provides information on wise giving and how to file a complaint. www.ftc.gov/charityfraud IRS Search charitable organizations for tax information. www.irs.gov Charity Watch Tips for giving wisely and other helpful hints. www.charitywatch.org GuideStar Information on more than 1 million nonprofits. Also, important questions to ask yourself if you can’t decide on a charity. www.guidestar.org

Houston Freedman’s Town to spark care for historic community CMC agencies and city employees are on a mission of care together

By Lucha Morales More than 150 years ago, a story of freedom began to unfold in Houston’s Fourth Ward as thousands of freed slaves made the historic neighborhood their new home. Working together, the freed slaves began their journey to establish a community that would later become known as Freedman’s Town, a national historic site that embodies the rich history of African Americans plight to live freely in Houston following the Emancipation Proclamation. It’s a place Zion Escobar said she is helping to preserve through Houston’s Freedmen’s Town Conservancy, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to preserve the legacy of Freedmen’s Town through organizing, policy, and community engagement. Their purpose is to tell the untold stories of Freedman’s Town and gain global recognition for the oldest Black settlement in Houston.

“So many people don’t know how essential Freedmen’s Town is to the national story of freedom,” said Escobar, the executive director of Houston’s Freedmen’s Town Conservancy. “There’s an incredible jewel there. It just needs to be uncovered and polished and refined, so that people can understand the value of this history and why it’s worth protecting and preserving, which is what we aim to do.” The idea of freedom is a common thread among many Combined Municipal Campaign Agencies who provide essential services to the community and promote social causes that help underserved families and communities to become economically independent. CMC agencies are central to the city’s annual employee giving drive that raised more than $700,000 last year, demonstrating how city employees and CMC agencies unite to spark change — even during a global pandemic. “I was humbled by the number of employees who donated during a challenging time for everyone,” said Jennifer Cobb, the city’s citywide CMC coordinator. “It really shows that city employees and CMC agencies care about making a positive impact and that’s where the 2022 COH Cares campaign comes in.” “We really wanted to show the community that city employees and CMC agencies are on a mission of care together,” Cobb said. The Conservancy recently became a CMC agency and will participate in its first campaign this year. The 2022 employee giving drive highlights the unified goal of CMC agencies and city employees to show that COH cares. Escobar said CMC donations will help the Conservancy to fund a broad community engagement effort to promote awareness about their top five priorities, including organization, historic preservation, heritage tourism, collaborative leadership, and education and citizen empowerment. She said she believes telling the story of Freedmen’s Town can trigger economic investment that will protect its legacy. “With community engagement, re-education, and the development of heritage tourism, what we’re doing is triggering investment to transform Freedmen’s Town into a center of commerce and tourism and expand the recognition of its legacy to a global scale,” Escobar said. “Freedmen’s Town is where Black Houston took shape,” Escobar said. “It’s the source of the city’s early Black leadership. It’s where the story of freedom began.” “They built homes, schools, businesses, churches and lives,” Escobar said. “They built a world in which African Americans could prosper and thrive.” The Houston Freedmen’s Town Conservancy is leading www.houstonCMC.org


several projects to help tell the story of Freedmen’s Town. To help promote heritage tourism, the Conservancy is developing a Visitor Center to support community engagement, an augmented reality app that will provide a self-guided immersive experience in real time for tourists and locals, and a web-based platform that displays a visual and historically accurate representation of the development of Freedmen’s Town from 1865 to 2020 that can be viewed online. They will also develop a financial incentive plan that will aid in the preservation of current historic resources in the community and a long-range plan to gain World Heritage Designation to help ensure the legacy of Freedman’s Town. Escobar said she hopes city employees will join the Houston Freedmen’s Town Conservancy’s mission and vision to reimagine how preservation is viewed by the community, while working to tell the untold stories of the historic community and the many challenges residents have endured over the last 150 years. “With your help, we will deliver a call heard around the world to visit, invest, and celebrate this legacy,” she said. The conservancy’s agency code is 2894. Freedmen’s Town is a story of resiliency, which city employees and CMC agencies can relate to as we all navigate life during a pandemic. This year, let us continue to unite in our mission of caring through our generous donations to CMC agencies that pave a way for at-risk kids to attend college, shelter families from homelessness, help feed the community, work to save the environment, or save abandoned animals from the streets. Let’s do it because COH cares.
