On behalf of Career and Recovery Resources, Inc. (CRR), we are pleased to announce CRR’s 23rd Annual Barrier Breaker Award Luncheon on Tuesday, June 25, 2019, from 11:30am – 1:00pm at the Hyatt Regency Houston Downtown, 1200 Louisiana Street.

This year the agency will honor the retirement of Dr. Vernus C. Swisher for his twenty-three years of devoted service as the CEO of Career and Recovery Resources, Inc. CRR’s mission is to help people identify and overcome barriers to employment, and this has been Dr. Swisher’s focus for twenty-three years, therefore we will also honor our Star Clients, those whose lives have been successfully impacted by the services of our agency. 

We have celebrated the success of many clients, and have been assisted by outstanding event Co-Chairs, Board Members, Volunteers, and Corporations. This year we are delighted to have Honoree JPMorgan Chase as our Outstanding Corporate Leader and Underwriter. We are also honored to have Purepoint Financial as Partnership Society sponsors and and CenterPoint Energy as Collaborative Partners sponsors!
