Please SUPPORT our SUCCESS!
Our 501c3 Organization HiWay to Excellence - Human Development has established ByWay Oasis - a Youth Crisis Shelter and Residential Care Home in a private, warm, and welcoming 5 Bedroom Home in North Houston. We are set up to offer a secure, learning-focused environment - furnished with all the necessities...where we will protect, serve, and uplift children in their time of need.
Our Mission: Support youth through their toughest challenges - INSPIRE all to chart & maintain a course for success!
ByWay Oasis is a 12-bed respite haven for children ages 5 and up, and is ready to accept residents, as soon as approved to operate!
ByWay Oasis is currently in an active licensing phase, to obtain our General Residential Child Care Licensing - Chapter 748 with the State of Texas, Department of Family and Protective Services.
As part of the approval process, we have to demonstrate a reserve of funds to cover 3 months of operating costs.
We are SO CLOSE - and are now at a critical point and can no longer go it alone. We are furnished and ready, but we must reach out to raise funds in order to secure our State General Residential Operation License, and further secure our contracts to serve children under the care of Child Protective Services, and Health and Human Services. Once opened, there will be adequate revenue generated to support ongoing operations. We just need to be able to open the doors!
HiWay to Excellence and ByWay Oasis have ZERO DEBT, and we do have income sufficient to keep the doors open and basic bills paid until we are cash positive through our services.
However, at this time, we do not have the on-hand funds to meet the State's requirement to have access to 3 months of reserve operational funding.
We are in gear and poised to open, but will not be able to without financial assistance from the community!
Please consider a gift to help ensure our SUCCESS!
Any funding raised will directly support the initial licensing requirements for operational funds in reserve and any additional funds generated will be committed to the ongoing service of the residents of the ByWay Oasis.
Once we are able to meet our reserve funding requirement, we do have a few additional items on our wish list: inspirational wall art, install a deeper kitchen sink, obtain an all-ages outdoor playset, install better quality movie projectors in our media areas - both up and downstairs, additional pillows, weighted blankets, child-specific sundries, as well as 6 tablets and 6 Chromebooks for educational, and leisure use by our young residents.
