Background and Discussion:

My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) is a movement designed to improve outcomes and to reduce opportunity gaps for boys and young men of color. The City of Houston accepted the President Obama’s MBK Community Challenge in September 2014 and the HHD Director was appointed to lead Houston’s response. As part of the MBK Houston Local Action Plan, the Systems of Care (SOC) response system was developed. The services under this system are designed to address the social, emotional, physical and behavioral health issues that are the root causes for poor academic performance, poor attendance and unacceptable student behavior. A key service component in the systems of care model includes the school-based crisis intervention and supportive counseling services provided by the HCRCA Community Youth Services (CYS) Program. CYS Program has been the recipient of grant funds for the City of Houston’s MBK movement for the last four years.

 

Expected Impact:

As a result of this agreement and the funding opportunity, we’ve been able to successfully provide school based crisis intervention and supportive counseling services to identified clients in two Houston ISD schools (Bruce Elementary and Wheatley High School). With the extension of this agreement, it is expected that boys and young men of color will continue receiving the highest quality of services and positive outcomes as a consequence thereof.
