Water Lines laid near Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara parishioners and their neighbors are seeing the fruits of their labor.  The water lines have finally been laid in the community of Plainview Estates where a number of Santa Barbara parishioners have been living without running water for up to six years.  In addition to the public funds that Austin Interfaith fought for and won from Travis County this past April, families now also need to pay for their individual hookups.  Because their organizing experience was an opportunity for them to build strong relationships and effective organizing strategies, they are working collaboratively to raise the funds needed to connect all the families to the water mains.
