Executive Director, Making It Better
Making It Better began at Walnut Bend Elementary in January 2007. Most of the original 91 students were children who had been evacuated to Houston as a result of Hurricane Katrina. Since that time, we have worked tirelessly to address severe disadvantages faced by at-risk children in the Houston area by offering a variety of programs that provide quality support services to enhance students' social emotional learning and provide a foundation for academic success. Our programs are tailored to meet the needs of each school campus. Whether the program is academic or enrichment, delivered during or after school, on a school campus or in an apartment-based program; the overarching goal is always the same . . . developing relationships and improving self-esteem by sparking creativity, fostering the desire to succeed, developing social skills, and expanding life experiences.
Our primary goal has been and will always be to serve our students, their families, our schools and the surrounding communities with excellence. We continually enhance and perfect our programs and operational procedures so that we remain excellent stewards of our resources while delivering the highest quality programs possible.
