Making #Houston a place of opportunity for all. 🏠🏘
This Juneteenth we hosted a wisdom exchange panel alongside @texassouthern to honor the legacy of African American Houstonians. Panelists were among those featured in the new book, "Black Lives Houston: Voices of Our Generation" which profiles three generations of African Americans and how they continue to impact the community and define what it means to be Black in America. This book also showcases various aspects of black cultural identity, proving that African Americans are diverse in opinion, lifestyle, social beliefs and values. The celebration of Juneteenth is not only about looking back, it's also about looking forward. It's a reminder to continually link our past with our future just as we've done for over 110 years at BakerRipley. #Juneteenth #Bla#BlackLiveston #BlackLives #HUMAN

β€œWhat does BakerRipley actually do?” We hear this question a lot. These kids from our New Neighbor school know: We exist to keep this region a welcoming place of opportunity, connecting our neighbors to resources that will allow them to earn, learn and belong. What does that look like? Let us show you. Click the link in our profile. #Houston

As kids, each of us probably already had a career in mind! Today, students at our charter school got to learn more about adults and their jobs during today’s Career Day! πŸ‘©πŸΌβ€πŸš’πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ”¬πŸ‘¨πŸΎβ€πŸ­πŸ‘©πŸΌβ€πŸ«πŸ‘©πŸΎβ€πŸŽ¨

We’re always grateful when our partners give a helping hand to enhance our spaces. Today, more than 50 volunteers from Hanover helped refurbish our walking track at the BakerRipley Harbach Campus. They also fixed bleachers, and cleaned the grounds to make the areas useful for the community. Thank you to the team who spent this morning with us and worked hard to spruce up our center! Corporate volunteer teams have a true impact on our neighborhoods and we’re glad to have their support. #volunteer #houston

Are you tired of the same divisive rhetoric? So are we.

We have our differences, but we have so much more in common.
