NestQuest awarded $5000 grant by Albert and Ethel Herzstein Charitable Foundation

The Albert and Ethel Herzstein Charitable Foundation has supported more than 1,000 organizations since it was founded in 1965, NestQuest Houston are delighted to announce that we are now included within that exclusive group!

The Albert and Ethel Herzstein Foundation has brought meaningful change to communities and individuals in Houston in many ways; NestQuest will be sure to continue this tradition as a result of this generous contribution to our cause. NestQuest are truly grateful for this kind contribution.

In September 2020, NestQuest was awarded a $5000 grant from the Herzstein Foundation. These funds will be used to support NestQuest’s ongoing Housing and Education Stability program. NestQuest’s Housing and Education Stability program ensures that families who receive Housing Choice Vouchers are able to remain in place whilst their children study at exceptional schools. Many students find they have to relocate to different schools whilst their families receive Housing Choice Vouchers, often moving between low ranking schools. NestQuest ensures that students in voucher households are enrolled in high ranking schools for the entirety of their time within each grade level.

NestQuest has seen huge spikes in demand for its services within Houston as a result of Covid-19; these funds enable our program to provide high level assistance to families on our program. This includes, but is not restricted to, rent relief, utility assistance, food packages, feminine hygiene products and other necessities. Many families in Houston are burdened by rent, through these funds NestQuest will be able to relieve this burden for families on its Housing and Education Stability program.
