Back to School, Houston

Thousands of Houston area families lost literally everything to Hurricane Harvey—including backpacks and school supplies that were just purchased to send kids back to class!

Family Matters Foundation is asking you to partner with us to help get students ready for school again. The funds you donate will be used to buy pens and paper and books and backpacks for those in need. And, to replace personal belongings essential to getting children’s lives back to normal. 

We appreciate your kind donation. No amount is too small.

Family Matters Foundation is a Houston-based non-profit dedicated to improving the lives of families.
