December already? It’s good though as Christmas is always such an exciting time at Fort Bend Hope with many opportunities for building community. At Fort Bend Hope, we believe strongly in the value of community. We believe it makes a real difference in our ability to fulfill our mission of restoring hope by empowering families through education.

A Fun Summer at Fort Bend Hope!
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.
End of Summer Reading Camp
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.
New Site Launch!
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.
Happy New Year!
Happy New Year! It’s not too late to say that is it? The start of a new year gives a chance for a new beginning. At Fort Bend Hope, we believe we are in the business of new beginnings.
