Loving Houston - 4:30
Marilyn Lee, Executive Director
Posted Sep 11, 2017
Churches are looking for ways to reach out to their communities. Schools are looking for community partners. We build relationships with church networks and school districts to help make these connections happen! In the past 2 years, we have helped connect 45 schools with church partners and have helped 10 churches expand their existing partnerships. These churches are providing mentors, supporting and encouraging teachers, and helping provide resources for schools that would otherwise come out of the teachers' own funds. Just last week, we heard from a pastor whose new church-school partnership helped prevent a shooting and a suicide at their partner school - wow! We are currently working primarily with 6 school districts (Houston, Spring Branch, Klein, Humble, Fort Bend, Lamar Consolidated), but have a model that churches and districts across Greater Houston are replicating. Brazosport ISD just started Loving Brazosport after coming to our workshops earlier this year! For More Infromation:?lovinghouston.net/workshops?
