Review for Harris County Hospital District Foundation, Houston, TX, USA
Through our partnership with the Harris County Hospital District Foundation, the women and children of Santa Maria Hostel have been able to greatly benefit and improve their quality of life. Over the past several years, Santa Maria Hostel has been able to develop and implement two unique programs that were generously supported by the Harris County Hospital District Foundation.
Santa Maria Hostel was proud to partner with the Harris County Hospital District Foundation to improve the overall health of our clients and their children utilizing the Fitness and Nutrition Connection (FAN) program. By providing nutrition information and structured fitness programs to indigent women and their children, we were able to create a knowledge base and foundation for a much healthier community for generations to come.
Most recently, with support from the Harris County Hospital District Foundation, Santa Maria Hostel was able to create the Healing Hearts program to address the mental health needs of the children in our care. Santa Maria Hostel was able to add the Healing Families program component to our existing services and provide family therapy services, Nurturing Parent classes, as well as specialized services for the children including: play therapy and art therapy. Although still a relatively new program, we have already seen great outcomes for our mothers and their children in residence.
