On February 3, Rebuilding Together Houston in conjunction with Super Bowl LI will build a legacy of Super Bowl LI in Houston by hosting a community revitalization project to rehabilitate the main section of the historic Independence Heights neighborhood. Independence Heights was the first self-governing, African American city incorporated into the state of Texas. This project will revive the neighborhood and keep its history alive, allowing longtime residents to age in place. The creation of a welcome center will allow visitors to learn about the neighborhood’s history, beginning in 1905, continuing through its eventual integration into the city of Houston and concluding with the vital role it plays today in Houston’s community.
For the past 22 years, Rebuilding Together has partnered with the National Football League to host projects in Super Bowl cities. These NFL-sanctioned events provide critical home repairs for low-income homeowners and their communities. The event will include help for individual homeowners in need and create a safer, healthier and beautifully rebuilt section of Independence Heights. Houston will be stronger with a more vibrant community.
