Halloween Safety 2017

Pumpkins adorn sidewalks, store shelves are filled with candy and spooky décor hangs from home and business entry ways. That can only mean one thing, Halloween is fast approaching! Sure, this holiday season ‘kickoff’ event is chiefly about the treats like fun costume parties and of course the sugar overload of Halloween candy, but Halloween can sadly mean scary times if you don’t take steps to protect you and family. Ironically, while many think of October as the month for Halloween, it is also National Crime Prevention month. So here is important information to keep you and your family safe on this Spooktacular day.

National Night Out

National Night Out (NNO) is an annual community-building event in which local communities and neighborhoods come together for many reasons including general community support, drug and crime prevention, and most importantly to strengthen partnerships and relationships with local police and public safety personnel. This annual event began in 1984 and takes place in all 50 states, US territories, and military bases worldwide. Approximately 16,000 communities and 38 million neighbors came together last year during this event, according to the National Association of Town Watch.

We thought we rescued him. It turns out he rescued us.

Dogs have a way of finding the people who need them most and filling an emptiness they never knew they had. That’s exactly what rescue has done for us. We got involved with DREAM shortly after uprooting our entire life and moving to Houston where we didn’t know a single soul. It’s been a way for us to do something we love while meeting some pretty spectacular people along the way!

Natural Disasters Bring an Uptick in Victimization

Going through a hurricane whether you were directly impacted or not makes us all susceptible to victimization. Our youth are sadly at risk for a myriad of reasons – some may have been displaced, some may be suffering from anxiety over the situation in general or simply by watching the news, and others may feel unsafe. Perpetrators pray on those vulnerabilities.
