In 2013, Neil and Maria Bush founded the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation to further First Lady Barbara Bush's literacy legacy. The Foundation seeks to deepen the awareness of the importance of literacy and build capacity across the Houston community to improve literacy rates among people of all ages. The Foundation also serves as a champion for the literacy cause in Houston by uniting literacy organizations around common messages and consistent data, and providing timely and relevant information to the community. With its army of volunteers, the Barbara Bush Literacy Foundation expands the capacity of school districts, libraries and nonprofit literacy service providers throughout the city.
Nearly 4,000 Houston children have suffered such life-threatening abuse that they’ve had to be removed from their homes and placed in foster care. Child Advocates trains everyday people to advocate for their best interests in court, so they can find safe, permanent homes. Unlike court-appointed attorneys juggling overwhelming caseloads, our volunteers represent just one child or sibling group at a time. Studies show children served by an advocate volunteer are better able to work with others and to control deviant behavior than children without an advocate. With Child Advocates’ help, the cycle of abuse can be broken, allowing these children to become productive adults and loving parents.
