AVANCE (A-vahn-ceh), the Spanish word for “advance” or “progress,” has been serving the needs of low-income families since its founding in Texas in 1973. AVANCE Houston offers programs that are designed to fully prepare students to succeed in school and transition to college.

AVANCE-Houston Luncheon 2017

I am so excited; the AVANCE- Annual Luncheon was a resounding success. More than 200 community leaders and supporters joined us April 7 at the Junior League of Houston. We talked about this year’s achievements and our plans going forward. It also provided the opportunity to hear from graduates of the program and to learn about their successes since participating.
