Eyes on Me Inc
Eyes On Me is on a mission to spread the gospel of Jesus to under-served and at-risk youth. Using biblical principles and standards, our vision is to disciple them for lifelong success and stability in the world. We are gathering young people every week in Brookshire and Spring Branch for our Hip Hop Hope outreach services, and using Christian hip hop to connect them to Jesus. At Royal High School, our HD mentoring program gives students an opportunity for an outlet to share their life stories & struggles with our mentors and for us to pour into their lives as well. Our prison ministry work is raising up volunteers that connect well with the troubled youth that we serve. With an extra emphasis to disciple the darkest neighborhoods in Houston, we've began strategically planting and reproducing churches, raising up leaders and sending them out to make disciples of the next generation.
"Our grant allowed us to provide transportation to over 100 at-risk & under-served youth to and from our weekly outreach services, discipleship groups and other special outings. In addition, we used a portion of our grant to operate & maintain a 24/7 mission center providing after school mentorship, computer labs, and community groups for spiritual growth and development."
God visits those in prison. Portal Houston’s mission is to come alongside of women who have experienced Him in the prison, and support the strengths of those leaving the criminal justice system, helping them build capacity to fulfill their God-given purpose. Our vision is to reduce recidivism of women through discipleship. Portal Houston trains women from the local church to mentor and coach women coming home to Houston. Our loving volunteers help match participants with safe housing, continued education, and job opportunities. Women receive services for family reconciliation, Biblical parenting skills, and increased social support through the local church.
“ Our grant allowed us to work with 37 vulnerable women and their families in the pilot program. This involved pre-release planning, transportation from releasing, and mentoring for a full year in the communities of their return. Stoller Foundation support has allowed us to establish a reentry hub in the inner city where volunteers are trained, and classes and support groups are held for women coming home to Houston.”
The Mission of Yahweh
The Mission of Yahweh (MOY) is the only emergency/transitional shelter in Houston that offers a unique continuum of care for homeless women/their children for up to two years. In 2018, 440 women/children will be served. A long-awaited new program has been established, The Kingdom Expansion Program, designed to share the good news of Jesus to residents. Approximately 85% of women declare themselves non- Christians upon arrival to MOY. The program provides residents with a firm foundation on Jesus’ teachings, equipping them with order/meaning/ethical direction to their lives. A full-time Chaplain provides biblical teaching/counseling/chapel programs/prayer support, and additional discipleship programs.
Freestyle Ministries' mission is to educate, equip, and inspire youth within juvenile justice facilities and high-risk communities to develop a relationship with Jesus, to develop and maintain positive lifestyle changes, and to use their God-given gifts and talents to create change in their generation. We primarily do so through the publication of FRUIT. magazine. We have a BIG vision for the future of the youth we serve. In our vision we see the statistics surrounding these young men and women changing drastically for the better. We see our readers encouraging their peers and creating a culture for change within the facilities and the communities they live in. This is a BIG vision but we have a BIG God. We want to be a key part of that culture shift. To accomplish this, our goals are to provide FRUIT. magazine to every juvenile justice facility in the US and beyond and to create new ways of connecting more deeply with our readers. We have developed three programs to help us accomplish these goals. These programs include: FRUIT. magazine clubs, FRUIT. release parties, and FRUIT. customization for organizations who want to customize FRUIT. for the youth they serve.
"Our grant enabled us to make our Executive Director position full-time and to hire a part-time assistant. This has helped us get the magazine out more regularly, to focus more on donor development, to increase correspondence with our readers, to increase our distribution to new cities and states, and to begin several new initiatives."

In our broken world, millions face a future filled with hunger, pain, and sorrow, while others enjoy a life of opportunity and comfort. Word2Act believes we are called to address the underlying causes of this poverty and therefore exists to improve the lives of the needy by wisely stewarding the generosity of the prospered.
Through its Dutch parent-organization Woord en Daad, Word2Act teams with on-the-ground partners in impoverished countries to carry out our mission: connecting people worldwide in their fight against poverty from a Christian perspective.
