The conference will feature tours of some of Houston’s unique neighborhoods and great networking opportunities. There will be workshops on key topics such as grants and government programs, health and safety, neighborhood initiatives, social and civic engagement, environment and resources, using new technology, what the senior boom means for neighborhoods and how to engage youth.
