Description

Becoming One Community (BOC) provides services located in the Houston area of Texas, Harris County. The organization was established to provide a comprehensive array of services to men and women who have been incarcerated, and are pardoned or on parole. The primary goal is the successful re-entry into society, and this is accomplished through providing a complete menu of services, activities, workshops, seminars, and referrals to support organizations.
