We Run For...
Children's Literacy through the NRH Library
The North Richland Hills Library supports children from birth through high school by hosting over 350 literacy programs each year that serve 10,000 participants. These programs teach foundational skills, instruct parents in how to support their child’s development, and provide delightful educational experiences.
The vision at the Community Enrichment Center (CEC) is to break the cycle of poverty and family violence. The CEC works directly with Northeast Tarrant families and individuals to move them out of crisis and into stability through employment readiness, high school equivalency, financial coaching, counseling, safe housing, food and basic necessities.
HELP Inc. is a non-profit organization that helps orphans in Nigeria. The vision of HELP is very simple, to make disciples of Jesus through sustainable partnerships in the domains of West Africa.
