Our team is a collaborative bureau which bridges the gap between schools and the communities for which they serve. We address specific community issues such as food, shelter and other viable resources that affect the day-to-day lives of children and families. In Houston, Texas alone, one of out five children live in poverty which only express a partial picture as two out of five Hispanics are impoverished not to mention one in every two African-Americans. These staggering statistics are what motivates us to engage with the community as well as contend in bureaucratic circles on improvements within the educational sphere as it relates to the overall well-being of the student.
Through collaboration with community organizations such as the Shape Center and the Houston Health Department, as well as parents, teachers, school staffs and community leaders, the situation for students should be of a better-quality as they will receive a more comprehensive form of care.
It takes a village to raise a child.
