In 2020, Harris County Drug Court Foundation became Justice Forward as it expanded its mission to work with all 18 Harris County Specialty Courts. Now identified as Justice Forward, the link to its history shows the prominent role that Emerson played in its inception.
Emerson provided more than $78,000 in seed money for the formation of the Foundation and has continued to support the Foundation both financially and with volunteers. Emerson is the largest supporter of the Foundation in the Houston community.
With Emerson’s assistance, since 2006 the Drug Court has graduated (rehabilitated) over 700 drug “offenders” from its two year program by breaking the cycle of incarceration.
