Kick-off was held at BakerRipley Saturday; Goal is to provide resources and connections
EAST ALDINE – The public was invited to a kick-off party, held by the Sheriff’s office, to introduce a new program called UNIDOS. The event was held last Saturday, at the BakerRipley complex in Town Center. Hundreds of families attended in spite of the intense heat, and the Sheriff’s team displayed a great deal of their equipment and services in various locations around the BakerRipley campus. This included a mounted horse patrol, SWAT vehicles, an Autism intervention unit, and the most exciting of the show, the landing and exhibition of the department’s helicopter.
The event also included a number of exhibits and information tents, by community groups such as Lone Star College — East Aldine, BakerRipley, Houston Police and Fire Departments, health organizations, and Harris County Precinct 2.
Unidos is a new program aimed at providing assistance to Spanish-speaking residents in Harris County through valuable resources and connections to meet the community’s needs.
