HELPING THE COMMUNITY
Edna Griggs, hails from one of the most historical settlements in the Houston region, the Acres Homes community. Proud to be a resident of the area known throughout Texas as the “44”, Griggs describes Acres Homes as, “one of the first communities originally homesteaded by Blacks, and one of the largest Black communities in the United States.”
Today, Griggs serves as a political activist. She may be seen anytime there is an election going on in the community and/or around the city encouraging as many residents as she can to get out and vote. She has also worked alongside many individuals pursuing public office as well as current politicians with their campaigns.
Edna is very involved in her community and is considered the Acres Homes activist for seniors and young people. This was her inspiration in founding Acres of angels.
