The grant will help launch Hope through Housing’s Building Bright Futures youth development program that focuses on after-school programs, mentoring and college/career readiness. The funding will specifically support the Lexington Square community in Angleton, Texas.
“We know that surrounding kids with positive role models is key to guiding them toward a brighter tomorrow,” said Hope through Housing President Greg Bradbard. “And we are grateful to the MLK Celebration Committee for helping us help kids to reach for their dreams!”
In collaboration with its housing partner, National CORE, the Hope through Housing Foundation provides a stable living environment for low-income individuals and families who may otherwise be at-risk of homelessness.
