Luncheon guests will enjoy a four-course menu; receive special gifts, including a signed photo of Coach Shula; and have the opportunity to meet and mingle with other football players and coaches.

Serving Fort Worth for over 80 years, Lena Pope Home’s mission has remained the same, to help create hope, happiness and success for children and families.  Impacting over 20,000 individuals a year, LPH focuses on three key areas: prevention, early intervention, and counseling.  The Chapel Hill Academy Charter School offers an early education foundation to children with wrap-around services for their families to prevent future struggles in school.

Lena Pope Home partners with Fort Worth ISD and Juvenile Probation to offer alternative education programs aimed at early intervention to give children a second chance to become successful and return to their home campuses.  To bridge the two, LPH offers a broad range of counseling, therapy and parent services through the Family Matters counseling programs.

All LPH programs implement evidence-based, research tested techniques with the children and families served.
