CNN’s Defining America Profiles Las Lomas, Texas, where RCAP has been Involved

December 14, 2011 |

In the summer of 2011, CNN’s Defining America project explored the stories behind the statistics that we so often hear about to show how places are changing.

One profile done by the project was of a remote community in the heel of southern Texas’ Rio Grande Valley – Las Lomas, a predominantly Hispanic neighborhood in unincorporated Starr County.

Community Resource Group, the Southern RCAP, is responsible for many of the improvements to the community’s water system, which have benefits far beyond the direct ones its residents can derive from clean, safe water.

CNN’s profile includes a photo essay on life in a Texas Colonia.
