Make a Difference

Serving God in our Community and Around the World

Have you ever been caught up in the daily grind, only to notice the only things you can make time for are those nearest your heart? Jesus knew that would happen. That is why he instructs us to invest our lives and livelihood in His work. He said, “Invest your resources in heaven because where your treasure is there your heart will be also.” (Matthew 6:19-21)

As we invest our time, talent and money in God’s work we not only strengthen our relationship to God, we help God change the world.

At Foundry, we believe in serving others here in Cy-Fair and beyond.  If you have a heart to serve, we invite you to join our effort to change the world around us.

Cy-Hope Ministries

Cy-Hope, a local non-profit agency birthed by Foundry, has become a major force for good in the Cy-Fair community. Cy-Hope’s mission is to make life better for all students in our community by bringing needs and solutions together. Numerous community leaders and organizations have rallied behind Cy-Hope and their mission, in part because of the recognition Cy-Hope is receiving in many articles and publications, including this article from Duke University’s Faith and Leadership

Foundry’s engagement in supporting our schools began when we adopted Francone Elementary School in 2010 and Andre Elementary School in 2011. Today we assist thousands of children and families throughout the year, including providing Christmas food and gifts for over 900 children and their families in 2015. The scope of our outreach includes weekly mentoring for students, assistance at school events, and campus improvements through landscaping projects and the donation of needed equipment.

We bring hope to students so they will grow up to be well-educated and productive citizens, making a lasting and positive impact on the community of Cy-Fair.

School Partnership - How You Can Help

Foundry’s partnership with Francone and Andre Elementary Schools strives to offer support, encouragement, supplies and time to the school staff, so they can positively impact the lives of the children in their schools.

Ways you can help:
• Tutor a child weekly, for one hour or more, with their school work
• Donate new or gently used coats, boys’ clothing, children’s shoes and belts (Drop off donations at the Fry Road church office)
• Donate your time by baking or making mailbox treats for staff members or assisting teachers with their recess and lunch duties so they can tutor students during that time
• Become a mentor. The CFISD Mentor Program is a cooperative effort of volunteers designed to encourage students (elementary through high school) to finish school and focus on future education and career goals. A mentor is a role model committed to helping a student with his/her academic and social development.

If you have questions or would like more information about how to serve, please email us.

Other Local Missions

Mission of Yahweh – The Mission of Yahweh offers many life-changing programs focused on ending the cycle of homelessness and dependency for women and children under 14. They offer education programs such as life skills classes, parenting,  money management, and computer training to develop job skills and resume preparation. Additionally they provide on-site essential case management services that assist in women dealing with the pains of their past, and learning hope, self-sufficiency, and independence for the future. Women receive a self improvement plan based on their needs. Weekly monitoring helps each resident to reach established goals. Case managers also intercede for residents with the courts, housing resources and other issues as needed. Residents are required to participate in the “Responsible Resident Program” where they learn responsibility and accountability. All the women give a minimum of 10 hours per week to help maintain The Mission; they help cook all of the meals, clean their room and bathrooms, common areas and help with accepting “in-kind” donations. Most importantly, as a non-denominational Christian shelter, The Mission of Yahweh strives to meet spiritual needs by offering chapel services Sunday and Thursday, and providing spiritual counseling for anyone in need.

Cypress Assistance Ministries – Cypress Assistance Ministries is a faith based organization that serves individuals and families in financial crisis, those on the brink of homelessness, the elderly, the unemployed and anyone that needs hope for a better future. Our goal is to restore our neighbors, regardless of religious or ethnic background, to self sufficiency.

Teen Life Center – The Teen Life Center is a safe place where pregnant women up to age 25 can come to share their dreams and fears. They will connect with a staff member who will help determine how to best assist them (parenting, childbirth questions, current life choices and challenges).
