Testimonial from Carole Little – Donna’s artistic side is so closely intertwined with her spirituality, by the end of the first day, it was clear that she was not only sharing her talent with me but that she truly cared about me as an individual. I highly encourage anyone looking for a unique, creative and relaxing experience to get in touch with Donna or John to arrange a custom class just like I did. Pretty soon, you too will be creating one of a kind, unique fused glass pieces and the process will assist you in winding down from the daily grind while helping you discover your creative side.
Norteño music grew quickly in popularity among the young Hispanic population in Texas. The sound was more traditional than Tejano, as it did not incorporate American musical trends and was sung solely in Spanish. Before long, Norteño stations were displacing the Tejano radio stations in Texas, until there were none left. “When the Norteño stations moved in, we contacted them to see if they would play our music, but they refused,” Gomez says. “We had lost our station and we felt belittled, especially because when we had our Tejano radio station we would also play their Norteño music.”

The success of the transitional housing program for young mothers made PRH leaders recognize that housing is a major issue in Houston’s Third Ward. As a result, the organization set up a community development program to build and manage affordable housing. Rice School of Architecture works with PRH to design housing that fits into and works with the existing structures. Equally as important is the organization’s goal to strengthen the community’s economy. One way PRH works toward this goal is by bringing visiting artists from around the world to live and work in the area. The organization also hosts an annual community celebration during the second week of October.Tweet
