Our Programs

Back to School Mission

Back to School Mission provides back packs and all the school supplies on the list for the grade the child is in. These supplies are taken to the school and are in the students room the day school starts. 


In 2018, we supplied backpacks and school supplies to 441 students.


 

The Medical Assistance Program is funded by Hunt Memorial Hospital District. Most any medical expense, within reason, not paid by Medicaid can by paid for by this program providing the family meets our requirements. This includes gasoline to get a child to a medical facility.

Reading Roundup

 Reading Roundup is a program to provide elementary students with a book to keep. The student chooses a book, a volunteer will read to them and the student gets to take the book home. 


Students enjoyed viewing a Quinlan ISD police cruiser while visiting with an officer and receiving a Junior Office Police badge.


Cookies and juice were served as a snack.

Lighting a Path to a New Quest

   So navigating the world of foster care can be a tough road.  In order to help both the child and the foster parent in that first night, we’re partnering with community members to provide them with a first night bag upon removal by CPS.                   

Bag Contents:       

  • pajamas      
  • one set of clothes (underwear/socks/shirt/pants)      
  • toothbrush/paste      
  • comb/brush      
  • comfort item such as a stuffed animal/blanket/toy.    

 

 Clothe the Kids is a program designed to help QISD families in need with school clothing for their children. Students are nominated by their teachers, approved by the counselors and then the applications are sent to us. We contact the family and make arrangements to take the family shopping. 


 

Emergency Response Program is partially funded by United Way of Hunt County and it covers most any expense that falls through the cracks of our other programs.








What we do for these children is fundamental. If they have the school supplies and clothing they need, they will do better in school and are more apt to finish high school.
