  • The Center for Afterschool, Summer and Enrichment for Kids, or CASE for Kids, is a division of Harris County Department of Education (HCDE) that was formed in 1999. The vision of CASE for Kids is to ensure that every child in Harris County will have access to high-quality, expanded learning opportunities. CASE for Kids believes a quality out-of-school time program provides avenues for opportunities for youth to excel, explore and expand their horizons before school, after school, on weekends, and during the summer. A quality program provides a safe and inclusive environment, diverse learning opportunities, effective administrative strategies, collaborative relationships, and intentional program promotion.

    City Connections Youth Initiative, funded directly by City of Houston, supports nonprofit organizations that address the need for youth services during the school year. Initiatives funded by the CASE for Kids City Connections program provide comprehensive programs and short-term projects hosted in-person, virtually, or as a hybrid from a variety of locations, including schools, community centers, apartment complexes, and churches.
