Hilton Kelley - CIDA Inc.

Each and every individual has the God given right to breathe clean air. No one should have the right to contaminate your air with dangerous toxins.

Every year, thousands of tons of incredibly dangerous pollutants—sulfur dioxide, particulate matter and volatile organic compounds—are released into the environment. As a result, the very air that we breathe to stay alive is contaminated.

This is why we fight; to protect your basic human right to breathe clean air.

Hurricane Laura Recovery

The Community In-power and Development Association Inc. is providing assistance to help repair and or place roofs on homes after they were destroyed during hurricane Laura and Delta. August / September 2020.


More help is needed. This is a long term recovery effort due to the large volume of homes that were impacted. However together we can get citizens back in they’re homes.

On August 26th, 2020 Hurricane Laura slammed the Southeast Texas and Southwest Louisiana coast with category 4 hurricane winds and 10 foot storm surges. The Community In-Power and Development Association Inc.
