From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for the outpouring of love and support for the families and staff of KIPP Houston Public Schools from across the country. We are humbled by the many offers of assistance during these trying times.  Many, many KIPP Houston families and staff have been displaced from their homes and are in need of food and personal items to aid in recovery from the storm. We have set up a Family Emergency Fund to provide direct support to our staff and families in need. 100% of funds will go directly to KIPP families, staff, and the community members who need it most.  Please consider supporting the fund at www.kipphouston.org/donate - please select Family Emergency Fund from the drop down menu.

In addition, we have been able to serve over 600 families and community members. With the exception of our North and Northeast campuses, all other pantries will close at the end of the school day Friday, September 15. The North and Northeast pantries will remain open until Friday, September 22. All KIPP Houston families and community members are invited to visit the pantries daily. If you would like to help at the pantries, please sign up here. Volunteers are greatly needed at our Ferndale location. 

If you are a KIPP Houston family or staff member who is in need of support, please reach out directly to your School Leader or manager.

We are Houston-strong, Texas-proud, and so grateful to you all!
