Our First "Get It Off Your Chest" Session was incredible. I am so proud of all who attended. We were able to save a child's life and that's so uplifting to know we found a way to work together as a community to help each other. Every 3rd Saturday of the month a new Topic will be addressed. Fun activities, and food to follow each one.We are in need of food contributions for these sessions.
Thanks so much to all our Pastors, Counselors, Teachers, Parents, Law Enforcement, youth, and Officials who attended this life changing program

Posted July 7th 2018-Not quite a year ago one of the worst hurricanes hit our communities. while some are back on track there are so many who are still devastated still living in tents and tarp homes. Debri and trash still covers the Streets and yards, ditches and abandoned homes left with the trash piled high with no sound of life left there. Camilla Subdivision is a lost community with people that most do not want to mess with because of it's history of drugs, squatters, and very very poor people with some not having clean water, restrooms and staph has been a serious issue due to unclean conditions and no way to shower. 49% of our survey's show to have Former Veterans living in vehicle with no running water nor restroom access. If your seeing this post and want to get involved or join the team that is trying to make changes so these families can have hope again and the children can have a better quality of life. Look at the People Helping People. These photos are from June 7 2018 to present. Hungry families with no vehicles to get to food pantries, they lost everything including important documents they need to apply for assistance. There are hungry children and adults. We need non-perishable food items, first aid items, jug water, kids clothes, Kid shoes, school supplies, camping supplies. We are working on finding concrete contractors we hope together we can build a outdoor concrete shower house/restrooms this will help eliminate a lot of the staph and illnesses due to unclean environments and contaminated grounds and water sources. The Community and Children's Impact Center is proud to be working with so many caring people and businesses to help make a difference. NOW- So sad!!!!
2018 Hug a Tree/Kiss A Fish was a tremendous success because of all our wonderful sponsors.
September 2017 a Historical Hurricane Harvey hits our Texas Coast and the Impact Team was ready with hundreds of volunteers and amazing people who came to help our small forgotten communities.

Lufkin Texas families came to our rescue and are still helping us get our lives back! WE are Texas strong and I am so proud of our Impact Team. As of September 18th the Impact Center is still a resource center and will continue to these families get their lives back. Thank you to all is helping us make a difference.
