CenterPoint Energy donated 13 laptop
computers to Community Family Centers. The laptops
were well received and appreciated by students of CFC's Adult
Education Program. We extend our most sincere thanks to Gloria
Luna Bounds of CenterPoint Energy for her assistance in making this
donation to CFC a possibility.
Bank of America
Youth Internship Program
This summer we
had two wonderful interns, Jailene Garcia and John Marrero join
us from Bank of America’s Summer Youth
Internship Program. This program offered them the opportunity to gain
real-world experience at local nonprofit organizations by working
with participants of CFC's Camp Fresh.
We went into
the Life of an Intern and asked Jailene to describe
Community Family Centers’ mission in her own words:
the few weeks that I have been able to work at Community Family
Center I have come to the conclusion that the workers and volunteers
here want nothing but the best for the children attending the Camp
Fresh Summer Program. The program ensures that the children do not
stop learning even though they are on break, and also helps prepare
them for the upcoming grade level that they will be going to.
Summer is for STEM
Through the United Way of Greater Houston Summer
Education Collaboration, the Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council
partnered with the Children's Museum of Houston to give
20 girls from Community Family Centers the
opportunity to learn more about Science, Technology, Engineering and
ladies learned problem solving, experimented with conductive
material to learn about electricity, created a moving device with
hydraulics and built their own music box.
We are proud of
the partnership that offered these young ladies a great way
to stay engaged during the summer months.
