Ruby Roa, the American-Statesman’s Volunteer of the Year

Congratulations to Ruby Roa for being named “Volunteer of the Year” by the Austin American Statesman.

Meet Ruby Roa, the American-Statesman’s Volunteer of the Year | www.statesman.com.

The Statesman recognized Ruby for her work as an advocate for housing for the poor. At TxLIHIS we have worked with Ruby for many years, are proud to know Ruby and honored to count her as a friend.

TxLIHIS also honored Ruby asa Texas Houser in November.

I started my commitment to housing justice for people and communities with low incomes in 1975 in Austin's Clarksville community. These years of working side-by-side with dedicated community leaders to find solutions to housing and community development challenges have taught me some things and I’m learning new things every day.
