Did you know….
- Currently there are 673 homeless students in the HEB ISD (as of Jan. 2019)
- The nearest homeless shelters are in Fort Worth and in inclement weather, they fill up fast. Sometimes there is no room for families looking for a safe place to spend the night.
- Often it takes just one unexpected expense, like a car repair, to plunge a family into financial crisis.
- Some high school students are unaccompanied and are living without parental supervision or support. Frequently they couch surf at friends’ houses until they graduate.
- Jump for Joy raises funds to help provide these students and families with emergency housing, medical care, transportation and other essential needs.
- Jump for Joy is a made up of community volunteers who are committed to helping our young neighbors in need. 100% of Jump for Joy proceeds will directly improve the lives of students in the HEB ISD. All students and families are assisted through HEB ISD Family Support Services.
- Your donation of any amount makes a difference. Thank you for your support of our HEB youth!
