July 2017

Cy-Hope has so much to celebrate this summer! Our Hope Chest Resale Market has started to generate revenue for our programs. Our staff saw the lives of students changed at Camp Lemonade. Ambassadors of Compassion and Dierker's Champs have caught the attention of people city and statewide. Our Counseling Center now has the capacity to serve more families at our beautiful new home. We had a record number of kids attend our recent band camp - with half receiving scholarships. And, our Backpack Program continues to serve families needing food over the summer due to the generous donations of our spring food drives. While summer brings rest and relaxation for many of our families, we know that it brings added anxiety for some. Thank you for helping Cy-Hope continue to help so many in our community, even during the summer months. Read a feature article in the Houston Chronicle on Cy-Hope's Summer Programs.
