This new endeavor, the Bread of Life Academy, is a branch of the Bread of Life organization designed to give an educational opportunity to underserved Houstonians looking to gain skills that will make them more employable in the workforce.

Our vision is for Bread of Life Academy to be the anchor for young adults emerging from foster care or other juvenile systems. We envision a community that uplifts instead of stigmatizes. We envision a network of collective organizations coming together for a unified cause giving strength and action to our mission.
