Cy-Hope has the following programs to help us meet our goal of making life better for kids in Cy-Fair:
Backpack ProgramIn an effort to prevent childhood hunger and to provide each child the opportunity to succeed in school and life, the Backpack Program provides food for needy school children each weekend. In each bag, children find food that will help sustain them through the weekends when school food is not accessible. We currently serve 65 out of 85 Cy-Fair schools, which includes over 1850 children. Our goal is to have all 49 Title 1 schools participate in this program.Camp LemonadeThis program sends underprivileged youth to Stoney Creek Ranch for the ultimate summer camp experience.Counseling CenterThe Center for Children and Families (a Cy-Hope Counseling Clinic) specializes in play therapy, counseling for children and adolescents, marriage and family counseling, as well as group therapy.

Mission: Cy-Hope was birthed by a core group of people concerned about the children in our community. Cy-Fair I.S.D. is the third largest school district in Texas, and the largest non-urban school district in the country. Half of the 112,000 students at Cy-Fair are labeled as at-risk, meaning a family of four makes less than $40,000/year (with 38% of those making less than $22,000/year). Cy-Hope serves as a catalyst to bring needs and solutions together, bringing hope to at-risk children so they will grow up to be well educated and productive citizens. This will in turn make a lasting and positive impact on the community of Cy-Fair. Our vision at Cy-Hope is to rally our entire community: businesses, education, churches, civic organizations, hospitals, and individual volunteers to advance the goal of making life better for kids in Cy-Fair.
