Making New Connections
An array of programs are making a difference in the Sharpstown/Gulfton community. Breakthrough at Connect Community is a 6-week summer program designed to prepare high achieving students for competitive high school programs and college admission. Legacy Community Health is delivering comprehensive healthcare solutions regardless of ability to pay, as well as in-school clinics for students and their families. Several partners are working together with residents to develop skills in conversational English, financial management and digital literacy.
The founding partners of Connect Community are KIPP Houston Public Schools, Legacy Community Health, St. Luke’s United Methodist Church and the YMCA of Greater Houston. Houston Center for Literacy is a strong collaborating partner.
