Who We Are

Building Communities, Educating Families, Providing the Foundation for a Better Future.

Education Based Housing, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to provide safe and affordable housing to low-income families, while offering individuals and seniors the educational tools they need to better provide for themselves as well as the ability to pass these tools on to future generations.


How We Accomplish Our Mission:

Educating Families 

Education Based Housing, Inc. educates families within the communities we serve by offering English language classes, High School Equivalency Exam prep classes, computer software training, parenting classes, personal and group counseling, and health and nutrition classes. Classes vary from location to location.


Building Communities 

Through social activities, such as book clubs, holiday gatherings, children’s crafts, and storytime, as well as on-site daycare centers, we strive to build a cohesive environment where area families feel comfortable and take pride in maintaining their community.


Providing the Foundation for a Better Future 

By expanding the knowledge and comfort level that individuals and families have with a variety of work-related skills, we can help broaden our families' opportunities and empower each member with practical skills to help them achieve their goals. With a variety of training programs including medical assistant and accounting specialist training, our class attendees are more equipped to seek better jobs and continue their education, so that they will be role models for their families and communities. 

  • The Bookworm Bus is a state-of-the-art mobile library with a grassroots approach to visiting communities throughout Waller and surrounding counties. Barriers created by poverty, limited opportunities, limited English, and lack of transportation are alleviated by taking library programs, resources, and services directly to neighborhoods and schools. Committed to delivering books, fun, and fellowship, our routes travel the rural farm roads of Brookshire, Pattison, and Hempstead, Texas, and beyond. We continue to develop reading programs, storytime and reading scavenger hunts, and creative activities for all reading levels. The bus is a beacon of hope in building tomorrow’s readers.
