Jesus House Women and Children's Center

Human Services
The JHWCC is a faith-based home that provides food, essential needs and shelter for homeless mothers and their children. This is an intense 12-month self-sufficiency training program. The money raised will provide the help and tools needed for higher education and training needed to become self-sufficient. The program recipients receive a safe and secure nurturing home environment, compassionate support, higher education and character discipleship. The JHWCC program fills an untapped gap greatly needed in our community for homeless moms and their children because of low income, abandonment, eviction, toxic environment or other unfavorable situations. Our Mission is to develop and equip residents to become self-sufficient individuals."

Marfa Live Arts

Arts, Culture & Humanities
Marfa Live Arts engages and maintains a consistent presence in the lives of both youth and adults by providing free arts education & arts programming to our diverse rural community. We are the only organization who offers theatre arts opportunities in our area. Marfa Live Arts creates original arts education programs (playwriting, choir, theater, dance) and teaches these courses within Marfa Independent School District at no cost to the school. The underfunded school budget does not provide TEKS aligned enrichment classes such as ours which are unanimously endorsed and supported by school administration and teachers. Without Marfa Live Arts’ free in-school programs there would be an educational void in our community. Youth would not have the opportunity to gain essential skills learned through the exposure to theater arts. Skills, we have seen successfully demonstrated, such as finding/expressing their inner voice, developing critical thought and building self-confidence.
