Last night (Sept. 28, 2015) Houston Texans’ running back Arian Foster and some of his teammates served customers at Morton’s Steakhouse to raise money for Foster’s foundation, which aims to teach inner-city kids how to have a better life by focusing on food, family and finance. It’s a subject that’s very personal to Foster, as he tells News 88.7’s Eddie Robinson, on this edition of Houston Matters.

Also this hour: the annual Society of Petroleum Engineers Technical Conference and Exhibition is underway at the George R. Brown convention center. The event will focus on how the oil and gas sector should plan for success over the next 25 years. Bloomberg News Oil Reporter Joe Carroll is covering the event. We talk with him about the issues and industry trends at the forefront of this year’s conference.

Also today: A high-profile Texan has taken land earmarked as a wetlands preserve and found a way to legally extract natural gas from it. We learn more from Houston Chronicle investigative team and public radio show Reveal producer Peter Haden.

Plus: We examine the challenges women face after leaving prison. We hear the story of former inmate Natasha Jones, and we talk with a representative of the Houston-based non-profit The Women’s Home, which hopes to provide assistance to women re-entering society in part through the group’s first re-entry summit.
