Words About Angela's Work
Angela, you remind me of Ann Richards.
If you want to build a community, a refuge from life's storms, you'll want Angela Blanchard, a woman who has walked into storm after storm, and disaster and disaster, to help her community walk out of the storm with their heads held high. She's a one-of-a-kind leader––smart, wise, canny, clever and compassionate.
Angela is one of the most engaging and inspiring speakers...She talks about the toughest stuff and gets away with it.
Angela has the very rare ability to be on the ground, working with community members, engaging them in conversations and processes rich in discovery....and move the entire stakeholder community forward: stronger, wiser more capable and more united than before.
Every American city can learn from the way Angela's work is embracing Houston's future and weaving it into Houston's history.
Angela Blanchard was able to cut through the partisan rhetoric to get Democrats and Republicans on board. Together they raised $25 million to build the Neighborhood Center.
Angela’s work is more comprehensive than any other place in the country. This is a model we should really get the public to invest in.
