The fact that Hope Stone, Inc. is able to offer art, music, theater, and dance classes to students FREE OF CHARGE is amazing. These young people are experiencing all of life's best lessons: how to get along with others, the best place to put extra energy, the benefits of a cathartic outlet, and the joy of keeping your heart, mind, body, and soul healthy!!

Hope Stone provides an amazing space as well as amazing teachers to help transform children's lives! I have been witness to the maturing, increase in self-esteem, and overall happiness of the children that go to Hope Stone and work with the instructors there. The amount of love Jane and her staff have for these children and adolescents is incredible! Thanks so much Hope Stone for transforming my life!

Hope Stone is the ideal setting for my daughter. The staff are working artists who share their skills, passion for their art, and most importantly their work ethic with students. While learning their art and having fun young students begin to understand that their is a component of hard work and perseverance that is required.

For the past six months I have been working as an intern at Hope Stone Inc. and I feel so blessed to have found the opportunity to work with such a wonderful organization. At Hope Stone, the people are warm, caring, passionate and incredibly hard working. From the very first day I began helping out, I felt welcomed and enthusiastic to begin helping out. It's so wonderful to know that an organization like Hope Stone exists to bring the arts to kids in the Houston Area, while supporting dancers and creating/presenting beautiful dances with the company.

This program is heart-felt, and world-class, bridging art and community ! Jane's passion and persuasion has changed the life of many youth; if anyone doubts the influence and meaning of art in daily life, visit Hope Stone!

Implement a national program !! Jane should go the White House and get the NEA involved on some more initiatives of the nature of Hope Stone !!

Jane Weiner had a vision to bring arts to both at risk children and the community at large. Hope Stone reaches out to young children as well as troubled teens. I was involved with the yoga program for teens. It was amazing to watch them come out of their shells. The classes benefit young children as well. But Hope Stone also performs original dance material, filling a much needed gap in Houston's arts horizon.Thank you Jane, and Anell, her amazing sidekick who makes it all happen.

I have attended yoga classes over the past several years at Hope Stone Inc., as well as attended ballet classes before that. The quality of instruction is excellent; the environment is always high quality; teachers and staff who work and volunteer there are professional AND fun to work with. Classes offered change over time, so there is a steady variety of classes to choose from...as well as the popular favorites that so many students enjoy.

Houston.
