Gateway Pet Guardians

Our mission is to champion a thriving pet welfare community in the East Side Pet District. We strive to create a community of healthy pets and empowered pet owners. We do this by providing judgement-free, equitable access to pet resources,
and removing barriers to pet ownership.

Education

Limitless Horizons Ixil

Since 2004, Limitless Horizons Ixil (LHI) has worked to create opportunities for indigenous youth, women, and families to develop the academic and professional skills needed to effect change in their lives and community. Chajul, a rural indigenous Maya Ixil community, was devastated by Guatemala’s 36-year civil war. From 1960-1996, targeted violence amounted to genocide and left the community as one of the poorest in Guatemala today. Our core programs below enable our beneficiaries to grow up to become agents of change for generations to come:
● The Youth Development Program supports ambitious youth (66% girls) grades 7-12 with financial scholarships and wraparound services to help them succeed.
● Our Emerging Leaders Program provides Youth Development Program alumni with career development opportunities, fellowships, and ongoing support in their post-secondary transitions to university, employment, or entrepreneurship.
● The Saber Sin Límites (Limitless Knowledge) Community Library offers the entire community of all ages access to over 9,000 books as well as weekly activities including story and cultural hours, book clubs, art activities, tutoring, and homework help.

Arts

RxART

RxART is a nonprofit organization with the mission of helping children to heal through the extraordinary power of visual art. We commission exceptional artists to transform children’s hospital spaces into inspiring and engaging healing environments. Each project is produced at no cost to the hospital and each artist offered an honorarium and chance to change children’s lives as they heal.

Environment

Buffalo Bayou Partnership

Buffalo Bayou Partnership (BBP) is the non-profit revitalizing and transforming Buffalo Bayou, Houston’s most significant natural resource. The organization’s geographic focus is the 10-square mile stretch of the bayou that flows from Shepherd Drive, through the heart of downtown into the East End, and onto the Port of Houston Turning Basin. BBP has implemented more than $200 million in improvements for the redevelopment and stewardship of the waterfront – spearheading award-winning capital projects, protecting land for future parks and green space, constructing hike and bike trails, and operating comprehensive clean-up and maintenance programs. In 2015, BBP completed the $58 million Buffalo Bayou Park project. This 160-acre greenspace lies west of downtown Houston and includes beautiful gardens and native landscaping; hike and bike trails; paddle craft and bike rentals; the go-to dog park in the city; public art; a creative nature play area; two visitor centers; and gathering places for visitors to picnic, relax and enjoy outdoor activities.

In Crisis, Rebuilding Lives, Poverty & Hunger, Human Rights

Water Wells for Africa

Water Wells for Africa (WWFA) brings their first water ever to people in remote, hard-to-reach places in Africa. The villages we’ve been helping since 1996 are in areas where many other organizations do not go, but we have not forgotten these people on the fringes of life…and we invite YOU to be part of improving and saving lives in these villages.

Our wells have a 97% sustainability rate because we train people in the community to maintain and repair the wells. We also provide education on personal hygiene, which along with having clean water, helps people stay healthy and avoid waterborne illness like cholera and diarrhea. Join us in changing lives for the better!
