What a summer! Our summer reading camp is winding down as I write this. We just have one day left. This is the third year we have had the camp, and this is the biggest and best camp yet. We are averaging over 28 kids per day in attendance. We have 12 – 15 volunteers
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.
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.
