At Connect, we work to create opportunities for members of our community in Sharpstown/Gulfton by connecting them with essential resources, local institutions and one another to help build a brighter future for us all.
The idea is simple: meaningful connection is the root of shared success. It will take communal support to tackle complex and deeply rooted challenges like intergenerational poverty, unsafe living environments, and failing schools.
Our solution is based on the Purpose Built Communities model which works with residents to create both a pathway out of poverty and build a healthy, sustainable neighborhood. Our key strategies are a cradle through college education pipeline, health and wellness programs and mixed income housing, all coordinated by a local community quarterback organization.
