There's been lots of evidence of Houston's big, generous heart these past few days. It's overwhelming - in a really, really good way.
First of all, there's Hend. She feels at home here in Houston because of people like y'all. "People are friendly and nice and very kind here, not like in Boston [Hend's first U.S. hometown]. They smile to you. There is more community and more people like me."
Then, there's Scrabble! We were just overwhelmed by your support at Scrabble in the City, more evidence that H-Town folks really do have hearts as big as Texas.
Other highlights of our May news:
- Between the Lines is back! And on the front page we're celebrating Gerald's graduation;

We're feeling the love, Houston! Your kindness and care mean that thousands of your neighbors find support, encouragement, and communities of learning at Literacy Advance every year.
And as for us? Our hearts are full. THANK YOU.
