The need for additional quality compensatory education or after school programs is paramount for school-age children, families and communities. School-aged children enrolled in quality after school programs are less at risk to be involved in juvenile crime, substance abuse, antisocial behavior, poor academic performance, and dropping out of school. The Mission of Impacting Houston, Inc. is to be able to provide the safe haven for the facilitation of such an after-school program.
In 1996, Cynthia Bailey responded to growing family and community stressors with the development of Sure Thing Inc. now Impacting Houston, Inc.; she envisioned a neighborhood haven for children and youth whose environments were otherwise plagued with academic apathy, economic plight, and social decay.
IMPACTING HOUSTON provides a litany of additional activities, some of which include one and two-day workshops that focus on leadership, HIV/AIDS education and substance abuse. We sponsor Youth Summits, Basketball Tournaments, Town Hall Meetings, Voter Registration Drives and an annual road trip that highlight the nation’s finest College Universities.
