Have You Heard of Our Give Back Program?

You Can Help Your Favorite Nonprofit Regarding the humanitarian movement, Gandhi famously said, “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” Over the years, all of us here at Hegwood Law Group find this sentiment to be completely true. We are big proponents of supporting nonprofit organizations in particular because all the money they receive is used to further achieve their ultimate objective. What’s more, the key aspects of nonprofits are accountability, trustworthiness, honesty, and openness to every person who has invested time, money, and faith into their missions. Nonprofits do so much to provide services to people, but often, they struggle coming up with the necessary funds to help the ones who need them. It is for this reason that my team and I started our Give Back Program. We allow every client that we work with to select his or her favorite nonprofit. We don’t care which organization they choose; we just want the overall mission to represent a cause that is near and dear to our clients’ hearts. Once they pick the nonprofit they want to support, our team donates 10 percent of our attorney fees to that organization. We recognize that God has been very good to us in our own lives, so we all want to do our best to be good to others, as well. Here are three great local organizations in the Houston area that I support. 1) Pasadena, Texas - Habitat for Humanity Mission – A world where everyone has a decent place to live. Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity Pasadena Texas brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope. www.pasadenahabitat.org

2) Innovative Alternatives Mission - We find solutions to life’s most difficult people problems through mediation, counseling, and training since 1989. We are a United Way Agency. We use proven, highly effective intervention tools in mediation, counseling, and training. This promotes systemic change and allows clients to achieve lasting benefits. www.innovativealternatives.org 3) The ARC of the Gulf Coast Mission - The Arc of the Gulf Coast provides provide advocacy and advice for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities including autism and related diagnosis on decisions regarding education, transition, employment, guardianship, and other important issues. www.arcgulfcoast.org
