Dear Friends,

After a Quarter Century of Caring, I continue to be in awe of the impact we have made for Houston’s underserved youth. Under the stewardship of our past and present Board of Directors and our Founders, along with support from our donors, staff, and volunteers, we have improved the quality of life for 3.5 million underprivileged, abused, and disabled children.

Our commitment to addressing the needs of underserved youth is unwavering. The work is not easy, but when successful, is life-altering and has a ripple effect for generations to come. It is difficult to quantify the impact or reach we have in our community – because when one child is cared for, they can go on to care for another. This makes the work we do truly exponential.

Your time, resources, and dollars go toward creating a better future, not just for the children and families we reach, but for the Houston community as a whole. You help provide so much more than just beds, clothes, supplies, wheelchair-accessible vans, and toys; you provide hope, friendship, independence, and freedom.

The Founders, Board of Directors, and I thank you for 25 years of caring for our special children. I am humbled knowing that we are not alone in our mission.


 “I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” – Mother Theresa
