IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to construction and telephone infrastructure work in the vicinity of our offices, we have been experiencing sudden, temporary loss of phone service which can impact our hotline.  If you are trying to reach us via telephone and are experiencing either a fast busy signal, ringing with no answer or a message that says the phones are temporarily unavailable, this means that the lines into our building are currently disrupted.  During these disruptions, please call 281-CARE (281-2273), and they will be able to connect you to a WHW advocate remotely. We are truly sorry for any inconvenience and hope that the construction will be completed soon.
