Ninety years after our founding, the “Lena Pope Home” operates a good bit differently than it did when it was established as a residential solution for local children in need (and now goes by, simply, “Lena Pope”). Still, the agency continues to proactively respond to the changing needs of children in our community, guided by and with the support of key members of the Fort Worth community.
Join us for an opportunity to put Lena Pope’s current program offerings into the context of the agency’s rich, 93 year history.
Please RSVP for this event as space is limited.
Questions? Contact Katherine.Ware@LenaPope.org or call 817-255-2526.
Lena Pope’s mission is to equip children, families, caregivers, and community with a strong foundation through counseling, education, and behavior interventions.
Fear and shock have gripped our community once again with the loss of 21 innocent lives in Uvalde, Texas. For the last several years, ongoing senseless acts of violence in churches, schools, grocery stores, and community centers have created a shadow of despair threatening our sense of community and safety. COVID further isolated us and fragmented the underpinnings of our core as human beings. We are all devastated. Yet, we have NOT been overcome. Together we stand strong. Lena Pope stands for solidarity and strength in times of crisis. You are NOT alone.
Do you have a respite from the storm? Join us for comfort and community, a time of quiet reflection and sharing.
