By investing in their education, you have the power to positively shape their future. Adult participants gain valuable leadership, communication, problem solving skills and their children receive the necessary education to help break the cycle of poverty. AVANCE-Houston unlocks America’s potential by building stronger children, parents, families, and communities. We do this through enhancing parenting skills, literacy and children’s education, which nurture the optimal development of children, promote educational success, and foster the personal and economic success of families.
