Fort Bend Hope is solely focused on education as we believe education is the key to breaking the cycle of generational poverty. Education is so much more than facts or figures. It is opportunity and choice. It is control of your own future. It is an investment in yourself and your family. Take the first step today and own your future.
We are called to love our neighbors. This means knowing each other’s names and stories. It means being there for each other. It means learning from each other.
Fort Bend Hope invites you to volunteer with us as we all work together to improve our community for everyone.
If you have ever spent much time around me, you know that I have lots of theories. Theories are how I make sense of the world. Sometimes they are correct, and sometimes they are not. Regardless, they help inform my thinking. One of my favorites is how I think about the non-profit world.
What a great summer we’ve had at Fort Bend Hope. I believe that our summer camp was one to remember. I know that our kids had a blast as much as we did. Now, as we get closer to the start of our Fall semester, I think of how fulfilling it is to work in a nonprofit that loves people and loves to give.
Last year’s camp was a great experience. This one, was even better. Like last year, we had a focus on reading every day to keep kids reading throughout the summer, so they don’t fall backwards academically.
Dynamite comes in small packages. From tiny acorns, mighty oaks grow. Can’t start a fire without a spark. There are a lot of sayings about how big things start small. I was thinking about that this week as I was reflecting on the history of Fort Bend Hope.
