Louis Ramirez was born in Houston in 1958. He spent much of his childhood in a foster home in Des Moines, Iowa. As fate would have it he was sent to Pensacola, Florida for a year and then back home to Houston where he started working as a cook for more than 36 years. Now, he volunteers at ECHOS almost every day. He came to ECHOS after receiving Hurricane Harvey support and assistance. He is a Harvey survivor. Louis helps with the Food Pantry, and at Saturday Food Fairs. He loves giving back to the community, and especially at ECHOS.
