Valley Haven

Last week I attended a function at Valley Haven, the new emergency shelter being built in Harlingen. I was given a tour of the facility. They are making great progress and several organizations are helping turn this place into a reality. I can't wait till it opens and to volunteer some time with this nonprofit.

This past Wednesday I attended two meet and greet events- one in Port Isabel and another in Brownsville. One of the best parts of being on the campaign trail is learning more about our county, the different communities and running into great people. ‪#‎TeamSheila‬ ‪#‎VoteSheila‬
