Homeless Shelter for families will serve North Channel

CONSTRUCTION OF THE NEW FAMILY CENTER is scheduled to start in the 4th quarter of 2014, and be completed in 2015. The building will house up to six homeless families, for short periods of time while they receive BAHS services and prepare to reenter the mainstream of society. Besides housing and meals, the center will provide job training, resume preparation, and transportation for job interviews. BAHS is currently seeking donations to complete their $1.2 million fundraising campaign.

Elswick details Baytown Facility at North Shore Rotary meeting

NORTH CHANNEL – Rotarians heard from Roger Elswick last week, about the planned Family Center to serve homeless families in the Bay Area Homeless Service area.

Elswick is the campaign chair for the fundraising effort to build, furnish and equip the new center. The goal is to raise $1.2 million for this unique project.

Elswick is CEO of Community Toyota/Honda/Kia in Baytown, and devotes much of his time to worthwhile civic causes. He was accompanied in his presentation by Jim Wadzinski and BAHS executive director Bill Eckert.

Elswick explained that although the BAHS has been in existence since 1982, it serves homeless men, women and children in separate facilities. What was needed was a family facility, so that BAHS did not have to split them up. The new building, when completed in 2015, will be 6000 square feet in size, and have six family suites, dining areas, kitchen play area, office, and living room. It will be unique in East Harris County, with no other similar facility available for homeless families, he said.

BAHS service area is East Harris County, Chamber, and Liberty counties. This includes Channelview, North Shore, Sheldon, Galena Park, Jacinto City, Crosby, Highlands, Baytown, Mont Belvieu, Dayton, Liberty, and Anahuac.

Elswick is seeking donations, or pledges, that can be spread out over 3 years. BAHS is a 501c3 organization, so there is a tax advantage to donations. Individuals or companies that donate can have various rooms permanently named for them.

NORTH SHORE – A treasure of country western music is right here in North Shore. If you are looking for an enjoyable way to spend a Saturday evening, in a friendly, fun non-alcoholic environment, the Buckshot Jamboree will more than live up to your expectations.

The Jamboree is a life-long dream of Buck Sloan, realized in his own building on a side road, Hartman Street, off Old Beaumont Highway. Buck and his wife Shirley, and their band “The Buckshots” play every Saturday evening for three hours, to an audience that varies from 50 to 200.

The music is classic country western, with some rock and contemporary thrown in for variety. And the sounds they make are wonderful, and bring back memories to most everyone attending. Although the same band plays every Saturday, the program is always different, with four or more guest artists singing and playing.
