Mission & Values

Who We Are

Guided by the Following Values:

Diversity:

Diversity in leadership and representation is essential in ensuring that every household has an opportunity to live well. EBH respects the value that diverse life experiences bring to our board and leadership, and we strive to listen to their views and give them value.

Inclusion:

EBH is committed to being nondiscriminatory and providing equal opportunities for residents, employees, volunteers, and advancement in all areas of our work.

Community:

EBH will foster a culture of inclusivity, understanding, and empathy within our communities, by listening to one another’s needs, respecting boundaries, and approaching each situation ethically, we gain a sense of security and trust. These components are paramount to building a solid foundation for a thriving community.

Excellence:

EBH will model excellence by finding solutions to problems and turning challenges into learning opportunities. By reevaluating organizational paradigms often, keeping communication lines open, and understanding that sustained success and growth require a greater level of team commitment, leadership, and resilience.

Innovation:

EBH understands that innovation comes when our organization takes action steps to remain non-complacent. As the world begins to take new forms and adopt new policies, we will seek opportunities to offer new services that align with novel changes and implement them in our communities. EBH commits to staying inspired by change, being socially aware, and seeing evolution as an opportunity to transform the good into the better.

  • 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.
