YHHCC works in conjunction with Houston Children's Charity to help with improving the quality of life for Greater Houston’s underprivileged, abused and disabled children who have been otherwise left behind. The scope of our support is limited only by the availability of resources. Our goal is to leave no legitimate request for assistance unanswered.
Chariots for Children
We provide we provide special purpose vehicles used to deliver mobility freedom not otherwise available. This program is dedicated to providing specifically designed handicapped accessible vans to families and equipped transportation to organizations with a similar mission. HCC has awarded 90 passenger vans, 74 wheelchair accessible vehicles, 3 box trucks, 1 car, and 2 vehicle modifications to 94 agencies and 73 individual families and counting.
YHHCC helps in providing gently-used clothing and shoes to over 10,000 children and their families. This program was designed to provide a positive experience for families to shop at absolutely no cost to them.
This program has been paving the road for success for under-served children in Houston since 2005. Beginning with just one school district, the program now encompasses a number of independent school districts, charter schools across 5 counties. Overall, this annual project has helped more than 40,000 children. We truly believe that all children, regardless of their socio-economic status, should walk into school on day one with a backpack and the basic supplies needed to succeed.
A Better Night's Sleep
This program has been providing families with a twin mattress set, bed frame, sheets, pillow and blanket on a monthly basis. To date, HCC has provided over 23,000 children with a bed of their very own.
Beyond these tried and true programs that we work with Houston Children's Charity to push forward there are always additional opportunities that present themselves such as: Houston Children's Charity's annual Easter Party, Christmas Toy Distributions, and Adopt-A-Family programs as well as countless other opportunities that you will be notified of via our mailing list.
