Sharing the Responsibility  


ARTreach Programs in Texas are made possible through our partnerships with social service agencies, school districts and government entities serving children at-risk, senior/elderly and low-income populations. 

Did you know? Schools and agencies serving our State's most vulnerable populations are receiving State funding for art programs that work!  It's true, the State of Texas is providing the initial funding for critical art programs benefitting criminal justice, the elderly and disabled, and health and human services. 

Thank you to our legislators and thank you Texas Commission on the Arts, because with your hand that reaches out to help others -  you have engaged
our neediest communities. People will support State-funded programs that work! Our local community is matching state dollars and investing in art programs because art works. Budgets are growing. Change is happening!

Through ARTreach we can see that the vulnerable and weak are being enabled, and that neglected populations are being served. 
Through ARTreach, we meet the children in the streets who are at the highest risk of dropping out of school, turning to drugs, and becoming homeless or incarcerated. We can see children are being enabled through the arts. Children are not becoming dependent on the system, they are being inspired by our interest in them, they are growing stronger and their capabilities are expanding. 

ARTreach is working and serving our most vulnerable and at risk populations to positively impact communities and make change. The State is engaged, the community is engaged, private foundations, churches, families, individual donors, artists, social workers, and valuable volunteers are engaged and helping.
Mainstream Community Engagement

ARTreach Programs are accessible to our social service and school district partners and free to benefit at-risk and neglected populations.  Thank you to our community partners for supporting ARTreach and thank you to our state legislators and government leaders who recognize the impact the arts have on Texas, and for supporting the Texas Commission on the Arts. 



If I could change the world
If I could change the world

You can change the world!  The world of a child. 


Foundations are helping, churches are helping, now we would like to engage our local corporations in aiding in the development of community-based programs in Houston to serve juvenile justice, foster care, low-income families and children at risk this summer.  


Our successful corporations should play a bigger role in facilitating a child's brighter future. Be with us here in Houston's most poverty-stricken and volatile neighborhoods, and lend a hand!


Help us inspire creativity and build a better future for Houston and our children.

Read more about the need for these programs on our website, and consider making a donation today to change someone's world.
