WE NEED YOUR HELP.....FUND tHe HaNgOuT
wHAt wE nEEd at The hAnG oUT
We are in need of a commercial building in the Southwest Houston area. Our home has become overwhelmed with kids and parents and we cannot accommodate everyone at the same time. We also need a van for picking up and taking home kids that want to come. Some live as far as 40+ miles away. In the building we will need a Big Screen TV, Xbox 360 Kinect, and a Blue ray Player with a Sound system for our Game and Movie nights. We Need Computers for the after school programs. Food and snack donations must be sealed and store bought for the safety of the kids. Last but not least, cash donations are always welcome to help cut cost.

For single parents, long hours at work to make ends meet, helping with homework, and a lack of positive friendships for their child are also very challenging. The list goes on and on. We at “The Hang Out” do our best to share the love of God in words, actions, and attitude while building a genuine community in the neighborhood where we live. And it works! Not only is it fun for the kids, we also find ourselves providing solutions for some of the parent’s problems. Everyone leaves with a smile

Where Kids Can Be Kids ( even if they are 40 yrs old :-
You’ve heard that everything is BIG in Texas and LOVE is no exception. It started off slow but eventually neighbors and some parents chipped in with food. We as a community watch out for our neighbor’s kids. We are in need of a commercial building for more space; however, we do not want the children to lose the warm feeling of being loved. It is important to “The Hang Out” that we provide a safe, supportive environment
