For the last 107 years, House of Neighborly Service has provided opportunities that encourage, educate, and empower the families of our Westside Community. Their services include family support, child development, senior health, and food security.
Most recently, The Najim Charitable Foundation has supported the House of Neighborly Service program Kid’s Place Child Development Center.
The Kid’s Place Child Development Center is a Texas Rising Star accredited childcare center that provides tuition assistance for qualifying families. The program improves the physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development of children enrolled in multi-age classes. Teachers at Kid’s Place create a nurturing classroom with activities and lesson plans, and they emphasize social-emotional health for children with a focus on school readiness. Kid’s Place offers school supplies, diapers, clothing, holiday meals, and gifts. Kid’s Place also offers mental health therapeutic services for children.
A Journey of Growth and Development:
Meet Tony, a success story of The Kid’s Place Child Development Center program. Tony joined the Kid’s Place Child Development Center in August 2023. As a single parent, Tony’s mother hoped to enroll Tony in a program that could help with his speech delays and other basic development skills. Tony was very shy at first and struggled with interacting with other children in his class. After a few months of joining the program, Tony is flourishing! He is playing with toys, his classmates, and improving his language skills. Tony’s mom is happy to share that his home life and behavior have improved overall and feels blessed to have found House of Neighborly Service
