We <3 Alex's 5K and Kid's K!

We had a blast at Alex's 5K on November 4! Our residents and staff had an amazing time cheering on the runners and walkers. We are so grateful to be one of the event's beneficiaries and enjoy getting to participate every year and honor and celebrate Alex's life. Cheers to another successful year of this sweet event put on by his wonderful parents and friends!

There is still time to help them reach their goal! You can donate through clicking on the button below.

Houston Methodist ICare in Action Day

Houston Methodist Sugar Land recently joined us for their ICARE in Action Day! The fun-filled and impactful day consisted of playing Bingo, doing arts and crafts and making friendship bracelets with our adult program participants, painting RFAR posters, and making thank you cards for our amazing direct support professionals. Our adults absolutely loved getting to spend the day with them. We can't wait to have everyone back!

Celebrating 34 years of Service!

We are overjoyed to celebrate the wonderful Joann Booth for her 34 years of working at Avondale House! Joann is our most tenured employee, and has been faithfully serving our program participants all through the years! We couldn't be more grateful for her gentle and kindhearted spirit, hardworking attitude and passion for her work. If you know Joann, make sure to congratulate and thank her!

We're accepting new adult day program applicants!

We currently have openings in our adult day program, and are accepting new applicants.

The Avondale House adult day program is a safe environment for adults aged 18+ who need support and meaningful engagement throughout their day. Participants learn skills for daily living and engage in various community outings and activities, enjoying a low staff-to-participant ratio. 

We can't wait to hear from you!
