Center for Afterschool

When kids have safe places to go after school they make better grades, score higher on tests, and are less likely to engage in risky behavior. HCDE’s Center for Afterschool, Summer and Enrichment for Kids, or CASE for Kids, helps working families with engaging programs that keep kids on track for success. 






CASE for Kids believes every child deserves access to quality expanded learning time opportunities. A lack of meaningful adult supervision increases truancy, risk-taking behavior, poor grades and substance abuse. Kids need safe, stimulating places to go after school. However, working parents with extended commutes leave thousands of Houston’s young people unsupervised each day.

Our mission is to strengthen, support and sustain after-school programs and out-of-school time activities.

CASE for Kids develops and implements a variety of programs to serve students, families, schools and communities:
