Prosperity Community Outreach is a tax-exempt entity under section 501(c)(3) of the International Revenue Code.
PCO is designed to empower the youth to become responsible and productive members of their families and community.The Greenspoint Area is one of Houston’s more economically distressed neighborhoods and is greatly affected by the urban problems of gang violence, drug abuse, high teen pregnancy rates, school dropout and crime. PCO attempts to help participants redirect their energies into positive goals for the future rather than falling into the destructive path taken by many youth. They are taught to value education, delay gratification, view life as sacred and set responsible priorities. Our clients acquire social and leadership skills through role models, mentoring techniques, academic support. In addition, they learn the importance of respect and communication in their relationships with others.
Initially located in their home, PCO expanded in 2009 and now offers multiple programs throughout the year. With its central office located inside of His Image Covenant Church, the program regularly serves approximately 150 African-American and Latino youth between the ages of 5-19.PCO provides Greenspoint residents with more than 10 support services including: agency referrals; educational workshops; academic tutorial services; peer leadership development; recreational activities; and community service projects
