Review for Hope Stone, Inc, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Hope Stone is an amazing organization, bringing the arts to at-risk youth through a dynamic program called Kids Play. A year-long drumming, theater and creative movement class, kids explore, grow, gain confidence, learn to work together and ooze creativity. In addition, scholarships are given to many kids in town to take various arts classes. Finally, Hope Stone Dance Company is the toast of Houston's modern dance scene and opens up hundreds of seats to at-risk kids for their performances. Jane Weiner is a phenomenal visionary, promoting that art not only heals, but is necessary for a healthy and vibrant life.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the confidence of my own child and working closely with Jane Weiner, Executive Director.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the amazing people I've met, having my eyes opened to alternate kinds of art, and watching kids enter the program one way and exit with a special experience that changed their lives.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated, art-makers, creative and kind.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Give many at-risk kids a new outlook full of opportunities and confidence. Hope Stone would have the ability to offer more scholarships, work with new child-groups in Houston and take the Kids Play program to new places - new cities!
