WE HAVE A HEART for Children and Families

The mission of Lena Pope Home is to help create hope, happiness, and success for children and families.

More than 80 years ago, Lena Pope began providing a hope for orphaned children in North Texas. Since its founding in 1930, the programs offered by Lena Pope Home have evolved to meet the changing needs of the community. Today, we help create hope, happiness, and success for children and families through two focused areas: counseling and education.

Lena Pope Home helps families stay happy, strong, and together through evidence-based practices and programs.

Lena Pope Home helps families stay happy, strong, and together through evidence-based Family Matters Counseling. The goal of Family Matters Counseling is to offer children, individuals, and families hope for a productive life.

With our charter school, Chapel Hill Academy, Lena Pope Home offers a tuition-free, quality education for elementary aged students. Chapel Hill Academy creates a solid foundation and support system for each student, so that they may have greater chances of future success.

Another way that Lena Pope Home fosters education in the community is through the Juvenile Justice Alternative Education Program. This program provides an alternative education setting for students who have struggled to succeed on their home campuses. In this program, the students are taught valuable skills to ensure a promising future.

The newest program is the Lena Pope Early Learning Center. The Center provides all-day care and learning for children ages 2 ½ to 5 years old. Smart starts early with our evidenced based curriculum designed to meet national accreditation standards, including degreed teachers and low student-teacher ratios. We will accept childcare subsidies, as well as private pay, to ensure all children have access to high quality early education. 

Throughout the years, Lena Pope Home's mission has remained the same: to help create hope, happiness, and success for children and families. With every program and service we undertake, we honor the legacy that Mrs. Pope created over 80 years ago.
