Kathy Broussard -
Board member 2001 - December 2010
The Houston Ground Angels grew out of Kathy's concern that many patients flown into Houston for treatment did not have anyone to meet them, and couldn't afford round-trip taxi ride to the hospital. Valentine's Day of 2001 marked the first Ground Angel mission.
At that time Kathy and others were part of the Angel Flight's program. Angel Flight South Central Volunteer of the Year 2004.
In July 2005 Kathy, Pete and Bo started putting together what is now the Houston Ground Angels.
In January 2009, H-E-B Grocery Stores, KPRC Local 2 News and KSBJ Christian Radio awarded Kathy the Jefferson Award - In every neighborhood, there are "unsung heroes" -- volunteers who are not paid as well as many professionals but go well beyond their expected duties. The acts of this individual helped hundreds of others.
