Breakthrough Houston has collaborated with Connect Community and HISD to effectively triple its offering to students in the area. Starting this summer, this exciting expansion will create new programs at KIPP Connect and HISD’s Gregory Lincoln Education Center, providing even more opportunities to dedicated students across the city. Breakthrough Houston Executive Director Kathy Heinzerling said, “We’re thrilled to bring Connect Community and HISD into the Breakthrough family. This collaboration allows us to serve more students, train more teachers, and fill a growing need for specialized education in Houston.”

Breakthrough Houston began in 1995 with 20 students and a handful of teachers. With this expansion, they will serve more than 650 students and train 80+ teachers in 2019.
