Committed to a brighter future for children, neighbors and communities.

We consider a healthy neighborhood to be one that is safe, clean, and diverse; one in which it makes economic sense for people to invest and one where neighbors manage change successfully.

New Roof and a Heart Transformation

By Brian Shavers

Local homeowner receives a new roof and has a heart transformation at the same time. David, 53, recounts the blessing of having a new roof put on his house but is overwhelmed by the act of love and service from the Bounce volunteers. “They were angelic beings that worked on my house, they were not human. They did more for me than I can express with words,” he said, trying to give words to the emotions that were on his heart. This is just one of several testimonies we heard this summer when over 200 volunteers flooded our neighborhoods with the mission of selflessly giving their time and energy to see lives transformed with the Gospel of Jesus. With the help of our volunteers, we were able to assist 27 homeowners with exterior home repairs while building relationships with them along the way.  Our commitment to seeing a brighter future for children, neighbors and communities may start with a new roof, or a freshly painted house, however it ends with a transformed heart that understands what it means to be loved.

Last Friday was a busy time of celebratory events in East Waco. JH Hines hosted a Muffins for Moms event, where over 100 moms, grandmothers, aunties, sisters, and mother figures attended. Community partners and other volunteers also showed up to support this effort.
At the same time, just across West Waco Drive, was the Groundbreaking Ceremony for the new GW Carver Middle School. Alumni, current students and staff, public officials,Waco ISD, residents and other community members gathered for this historical event. We enjoyed being able to participate and support these exciting moments.
