Our House offers a safe space for youth from diverse circumstances to engage in after school activities that develop youth leadership, civic and community service opportunities and promotes healthy relationships. Now more than ever, youth have a need to build positive relationships and have a supportive space to share in the concerns and create solutions in their community.
Our House uses a strengths based, equitable, inclusive approach to partnering with our community that is disproportionately affected by a lack of resources and opportunities for families and students.
We are located at Parker Lane Methodist Church, 2105 Parker Lane
Our House was developed to eliminate barriers students face by encouraging the development of leadership abilities, teaching new skills, providing college and career preparation and offering access to therapeutic groups and support.
We are partnered with East Riverside/Oltorf Combined neighborhood association, the Friends of Riverside merchant’s association, the Austin Police Department, Travis Early College High School, and residents of the community to support students and the near East Austin community to offer a sustainable and collaborative community effort.
