Mosaic in Action Communications VISTA, OneStar
 
 
 
Mosaic in Action seeks to improve the lives of Brazoria County residents by working towards safe, sanitary and secure homes for all. We are a volunteer-driven organization, improving our community’s health and wellbeing through the repair of substandard housing. Three years ago, Hurricane Harvey devastated this region, and Mosaic in Action quickly went to work repairing and rebuilding homes using volunteer labor and AmeriCorps NCCC teams. Many of these homes were in poor condition prior to Harvey’s destruction. Now that storm recovery work is nearing completion, Mosaic in Action is reorganizing to tackle non-storm related housing issues. Located between bustling Houston and the Gulf coast, Brazoria is a diverse county. While northern urban areas like Pearland are prosperous, this is in marked contrast to the more rural parts of the county, where some residents live in food deserts and without public utilities. Given our county’s coastal location, with frequent adverse weather, many people are living in ever-deteriorating housing conditions. Substandard housing is less able to withstand severe weather, and each new weather event forces residents further into a downward spiral, where escalating repair costs and a decreasingly habitable property, are paired with lower property values and worsening safety and health effects. Mosaic in Action undertakes to reverse this decline, to improve the health and well-being of residents caught in this situation. We have already assisted over 270 families in the past three years, including 16 complete rebuilds of destroyed homes. To help publicize our mission, Mosaic in Action is searching for a talented individual who can help create a marketing strategy, communicating our work to donors, volunteers, clients, community partners and other stakeholders, through print and electronic publications, web and social media. Help spread the word about the good work we are doing for the poor and underprivileged of Brazoria County.
