What is the Hiram Clarke Community Festival?
Throughout Texas, many low-income communities are stuck in a cycle of poverty because they’re either uninformed (i.e. don’t know the resources that are available to them), ill informed (i.e. they have misconceptions about what it takes to use certain resources), or lack the financial resources to do anything about their situation. The mission of Continuing Progression Center is to strengthen these low-income communities by hosting events that are designed to expose resources and educate the children and adults in those communities. We believe that these events will help them progress further academically, educationally and financially – ultimately breaking the cycle of poverty and mis-education.
One such event is Hiram Clarke Community Festival (HCCF) – an annual event targeting the residents of Hiram Clarke – a low-income, multicultural community in South Houston. The goal of HCCF is to use miniworkshops and vendor booths to showcase the various businesses and resources available to residents of Hiram Clarke area. Examples of mini-workshops include how to apply for college, improve your credit, prepare a will, start your own business, receive bill pay assistance, etc. At the same time, we hope to celebrate the valuable contributions of members and leaders in the community by hosting fun events like community awards, a talent show, and feature local food trucks and restaurants.
HCCF will span 6 hours and 730,000 square feet making it the largest community festival ever held in the South Houston area.
The event will take place on Saturday, October 22 from Noon to 6 PM. Highlights of the event include mini workshops, a community award event, a talent competition, and a college scholarship award event.
