Texas Pioneer Foundation

A great big thank you to our newest foundation supporter, the Texas Pioneer Foundation. This organization supports access to higher education in Texas and is providing us with funding to ensure that HIPPY Home Instructors successfully access higher education resources. The funds will be used to allow us to:

1. Develop a mentorship program to provide individualized support to our members, using volunteers from the community and alumni from our program.

2. Establish partnerships with community colleges near our programs so our members can successfully transition into college. This is an effort to replicate and expand a successful partnership established at Richland College in Dallas, and Western College in Snyder.

3. Secure additional financial aid for members / alumni.
