Bel Inizio

Located in Houston, Texas, Bel Inizio helps disadvantaged women develop self-confidence and life skills through fitness and nutrition. Participants train to complete a 5K, which helps prepare them for the ultimate race — the race for a better life.

Houston has a generous giving community and great compassion for those in need. We have emergency shelters, transitional housing, and half-way houses. The agencies offer case workers, recovery programs, and job skills training. What gets lost, and is critically needed, is helping individuals achieve the self esteem and confidence that can come from an ongoing exercise and nutrition program.

Help for Bel Inizio clients hurt by Harvey
 Houston, Texas
August 18 - September 7, 2017

All over Houston individuals have lost their homes, vehicles, possessions, and in many cases, their jobs. This hurts everyone, but disproportionally, the already disadvantaged.

Bel Inizio clients and graduates have been working hard to get their lives back together.  In many cases they have their first ever stable home, have reunited with their children, and are working or back in school. It is a fragile existence living paycheck to paycheck and pulling on an inner reserve of strength when things get tough.

Things are now tough.

Our help is needed.

Please support Bel Inizio in helping our clients and graduates get through this tough time. Your donation may pay for bus fare; supplement an electric bill unpaid due to loss of work; replace clothing; or pay for medical help to name a few needs.  

It is hard to know where your donation goes at times like this.  With Bel Inizio you can be sure it used properly and efficiently.

With thanks,
