Houston ENGAGE Success: CHAT
Culture of Health–Advancing Together and Houston ENGAGE
CHAT (Culture of Health–Advancing Together) was founded in 2015 with a desire to help immigrants and refugees acclimate to American culture through education, healthcare, and social services. CHAT was selected to participate in Houston ENGAGE, M-AAA’s capacity building program for small to midsize arts and culture organizations.
During CHAT’s participation in ENGAGE, they have grown tremendously—assembling a governing board; finding a new location for their offices and after-school arts programs; collaborating with their ENGAGE peers to enrich their programming and outreach; and they were awarded a grant from Menninger Foundation to serve refugee children in a Houston school.
Congrats to CHAT!
