from the citizensnet email

The City of Houston welcomed its newest department, the Department of Neighborhoods (DON), on August 10, 2011 with approval from City Council. The DON accomplishes an efficient and effective reorganization of many divisions that were previously dispersed throughout the City organization, with the end result being a "one-stop-shop" for accessing City services and resolving neighborhood issues. Currently, the DON consists of the following divisions:

City of Houston Inspection & Public Services (CHIPS) - formerly Neighborhood Protection Corps

Mayor's Anti-Gang Office

Mayor's Citizens' Assistance Office (CAO)

Mayor's Office of Education Initiatives

Mayor's Office for People with Disabilities

Mayor's Office of Immigration & Refugee Affairs (MOIRA)

Mayor's Volunteer Initiatives Program (VIP)

The Department of Neighborhoods is here to serve you - together we can work toward improved quality of life in Houston's neighborhoods.

For further information about DON, see http://www.houstontx.gov/neighborhoods/.
