Help HPOU Support Camp Hope

The Houston Police Officers Union has reached out and is working to help Camp Home. Camp Hope works with Military Veterans struggling with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Camp Hope houses, feeds and helps Vets focus on getting their life back on track thru classes, daily life skills and a commitment to their self. Many of the Vets housed at Camp Hope have been found underneath bridges, walking the streets and basically flat homeless. Some have depended on the VA for help, but only to find themselves deeper down in a hole or addicted to the medication.

Please come out on May 29th, at 11:00 am and support this cause with food· plates, live and silent auctions. Proceeds are tax deductible.

Camp Hope and the PTSD Foundation have taken Vet Rehab to the next level. They go out on referrals, anonymous phone calls and .. Vet's walking in needing help. Camp Hope receives no federal financial support to work and refocus these Veterans.

We as a community, have to step up and help the ones that have walked into harms way and kept our priceless freedom free. C mp Hope haalso started support groups for first responders battling their own form of PTSD.

The Houston Police Officers’ Union has endorsed St. Rep. Sylvester Turner for mayor of the City of Houston. After considering other candidates in the mayor’s race, HPOU President Ray Hunt said choosing to endorse Turner was easy for the police officers because of his long track record on public safety issues.

"For over 25 years, Rep. Turner has been a leader in our community, taking on the tough issues," said Hunt. "Rep. Turner puts public safety first. We know he will work with the men and women of the Houston Police Department and every Houstonian to keep our city safe."

"Thank you, Houston Police Officers, for placing your confidence in me," said Rep. Turner. "We will work in partnership to keep crime, drugs and gangs out of our neighborhoods and inspire a new spirit of trust between the community and those who put their lives on the line to protect us."

During his time in the Texas Legislature, Rep. Turner has been a respected leader in Houston and has always been a staunch supporter of public safety. For more information on Turner, please visit www.sylvesterturner.com
