Developing the Community

At Nelson Commercial, we’re proud to be a positive influence on the communities we serve. In our efforts to give back to the people and families of the Houston area, we regularly contribute to the following organizations:

Founded by Anne Shaw Turnage, a survivor of colon cancer, CanCare has grown…

into a network of trained volunteers including survivors, family members of survivors and medical professionals who provide emotional support, information and cancer related resources. Survivors of more than 75 different types of cancer are the heartbeat of the organization, providing hope, friendship and even hospital visitations for those battling cancer. CanCare volunteers additionally make more than 10,000 visits each year to patients and their families at hospitals and treatment centers to offer support.

And beginning in March 2016 WHP has expanded to Katy ISD!

safe, fun, and healthy play at school every day. We create a place for every kid on the playground to feel included, be active, and build valuable social and emotional skills.
