After School and Summer Programs
The After School and Summer Program is a service provided by Hope Extreme that is instrumental to the educational growth of students living in under resourced environments in the east Houma area. The overall achievement of students is our main focus.
The Hope Extreme After School and Summer Program is currently provided to sixty-five (65) students in kindergarten through sixth grade annually who need intensive educational assistance. Hope Extreme's innovative programs help children, teens and young adults reach their goals and dream for the change that they long to see in their future. Hope Extreme's vision is to bring change to all of the lives living in the east Houma area for years to come.
Hope Gardens and Park
Hope Extreme is seeking funding for its newest project Hope Gardens and Park. This project will encompass the entirety of yard and lot directly behind the Hope Extreme building. Currently this lot is vacant and is known in the east Houma community for disturbances and illegal activity of all sorts. This activity then allows for these types of practices to continue and spread into east Houma. Additionally, the vacancy and blight further attract the same type of behavior and problems in the surrounding community.
Hope Extreme wants not only to alleviate this type of activity but to transform the neighborhood with the hope that comes from beautification and activities that will be open to the entirety of the neighborhood. Currently Hope Extreme students make items to further this mission.
It's hard being a teen. It's even harder being a teen in under-resourced environments and that is why Momentum teens exist to provide a place for students in junior high and high school to be themselves and grow in their relationships.
This group meets every Wednesday at 6:30 and everyone is always welcome. From there these students attend special events such as teen camp, discipleship weekends, concerts and the like. All students are encourage to let go of environments and influences and be who they were intended to be. We also have school clubs in several of the junior highs and high schools as well.
Hope To the Streets
At times it seems bleak, the reports are getting worse, and the violence, crime, and addiction is epidemic. That is why we take it to the streets. Someone has to do something and we believe that someone is us right here in east Houma.
Armed with special dances, dramas, fun games, and HOPE we use our young people and volunteers to help bring Hope to Houma's bleakest areas. We believe that life change is coming.
