Berg & Androphy Supports The Houston Center for Urban Transformation
The Center for Urban Transformation is a collaboration of several organizations, including the Fifth Ward Redevelopment Corporation, Pleasant Hill Ministries, Habitat for Humanity, Berg & Androphy law firm and Legacy Community Health.
The Harris County District Attorney’s Office joined with the Center to create the diversion program and has committed $200,000 of civil forfeiture money for the program’s first year. The Houston Bar Foundation has also awarded a $10,000 grant
On July 29, 2019 it was announced that a juvenile justice diversion program is the first major initiative. The diversion program will offer mentorship, volunteer work and community-based support services for 12- to 16-year-olds who commit crimes, except for cases involving gun violence or sexual assaults.
