CCSC Back to School
The Christian Community Center’s CCSC Back to School program helps provide brand new, grade-specific school supplies and clothing vouchers for students in pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade. In 2020 the program will be serving 6,500 underserved, low-income students in its 33 zip code service area, including some of Houston’s most high poverty communities. The program’s goal is to send students back to school with the tools they need to succeed academically, thus reducing the negative effects of growing up in poverty. Every child deserves the best possible opportunity to learn. Thank you for your support!

Giving to St. Luke’s Emergency Fund
Are you are moved to make a donation, above and beyond your regular giving? You can help those in the Gethsemane neighborhood with immediate needs by giving to the Emergency Fund.
St. Luke’s is feeding 90+ young people from our reVision ministry each day. Meals are prepared in the St. Luke’s Westheimer campus kitchen and transferred to the reVision staff for delivery to the students. This allows reVision to see and check in on the students every day while providing a much-needed hot meal. We hope to begin bringing students into the kitchen with Adam to help continue developing the workforce development program using the St. Luke’s kitchen as our hub. This program will use the kitchen as a vehicle to teach a wide range of employability skills.
