It takes participation for a community to thrive. At Volterra Energy, we’re giving back by partnering with children’s issue-focused charities from across Texas. All of our partner charities touch the lives of thousands of children every year. We’re introducing you to three Texas charities you should know:
Every nine minutes, a child in Texas experiences abuse or neglect. Nearly 4,000 children in the Houston area have experienced such life-threatening abuse or neglect that they had to be removed from their homes and placed into foster care. Child Advocates trains everyday people to advocate for the best interests of these children in court so they can find safe, permanent homes as quickly as possible. They speak up for abused children who are lost in the system and guide them into safe environments where they can thrive.
Bo’s Place exists to offer support and community to those who have experienced the death of a loved one. A non-profit, free-of-charge bereavement center, Bo’s Place offers multiple grief support services for adults, children, and families, and provides education and resources for those who assist people in grief.
Kids’ Meals on Wheels
Preschool-aged children often fall through the gaps in social services addressing food insecurity. Kids’ Meals on Wheels addresses the hunger and food insecurity for Texans aged five and younger who cannot access free meal programs in public schools. Their mission is to end childhood hunger by delivering free, healthy meals to the doorsteps of Houston’s hungriest preschool-aged children and, through collaboration, provide their families with resources to help end the cycle of poverty.
