Cooperative for After School Enrichment (CASE) has an after school program
at nearly every Houston Independent School District campus. Providing
free of charge after school care to students, this is a program that can
be exactly what you need if you are moving to Houston but don’t
have a plan on what your children will be doing when classes let out for the day.
Texas Reality Check offers students an opportunity to think critically
about their prospects for work and college after high school. While nobody
can predict exactly where higher education is going over the next several
years, I think it is a safe bet to assume that the costs of college will
only increase from this point forward. From living expenses, to tuition,
room and board to everything else associated with the costs of college
this organization will help you to see some hidden costs of college. If
you or your child are a first generation college student then your eyes
can really be opened up by working with this group.
Houston Public Libraries have campuses all over the city which provide
resources to you and your student with an eye towards college and beyond.
Literacy training, creative writing, art classes, resume assembly and
other services are all provided through the library system. The great
thing about these library programs is that they are all free. Even if
you and your family are on a budget Houston Public Libraries can serve you.
Selecting a college that you or your child can afford will make a huge
difference on your budget. Not considering the costs of college can have
a disastrous effect on your budget and on your family. Instead, work with
an organization like College for All Texans to learn about these factors,
scholarship opportunities and how to apply for financial aid.
