I Am Waters Foundation Helps Hydrate The Homeless | Houston, Texas | NBC KPRC Houston
A unique Houston-based foundation is serving a need few realize exists in the city: fresh, clean drinking water for the homeless population.
“If you don’t have water, you die,” said Elena Davis, founder of I Am Waters. “It’s imperative that you have water. You can survive longer without food than you can water.”
Davis founded the organization three years ago and began distributing bottles of water to 15 homeless shelters in Houston, Austin and Fort Worth. Last year, the foundation distributed 80,000 bottles. This year the foundation will distribute 300,000 bottles. The foundation delivers the water during the 16 hottest weeks of the summer.
