Christmas Offering 2016

This Christmas we would like to support three organizations doing great things in the area of “Zero to Five Learning” for at-risk children in our Gethsemane area. Zero to Five Learning is the acquisition of pre-literacy skills during the critical time period of zero to five years of age in which 90% of brain development occurs. If the skills are not acquired during this time, the learning deficits accumulated are almost impossible to make up resulting in low chances of high school graduation, college attendance or fulfilling, self-sustaining careers.

We’re honored to partner with Collaborative for Children, Legacy Community Health and UTHealth to provide:

  • Books
  • Training
  • Tools

At St. Luke’s, we want every child to have the opportunity to grow into the person God plans for them to be. We believe working to promote enriching Zero to Five Learning initiatives for at-risk children serves this purpose and is a real win/win for children, parents, families, schools and communities.
