FamilyPoint Resources - Your Help Is Needed

FamilyPoint Resources is a nonprofit agency in the West Houston community dedicated to investing in the lives of children and families in order to help bridge social and economic gaps and be part of breaking cycles of poverty in the area. Most of our efforts are focused in the community immediately surrounding Nottingham Park, the “Nottingham Park Area.”

Born in 2005 out of a local church’s commitment to serve the common good of the city, FamilyPoint is now an independent non-profit organization that has built strong relationships with several West Houston schools, businesses and churches to serve needy children and families. Through these relationships, FamilyPoint brings caring adult volunteers together with at-risk children in sports, education, arts and camp programs help break the cycle of poverty and fatherlessness.

FamilyPoint is focusing their attention on kids in Thornwood and Meadow Wood elementary. They are located in the West Houston Community Center, 725 Bateswood (a couple of blocks east of Meadow Wood Elementary). Please help spread the word about this program within your HOA. They need volunteer coaches, tutors, administrative assistance, and homework helpers. For more information:
