Lovingly nicknamed "the little school with the big heart," our heart
remains to see that every child with special needs has a place to learn
no matter the odds or diagnosis. It is exactly upon this calling that
The Arbor established its mission to educate, empower, and build hope
for children with significant special needs and their families.
Arbor has a one of its kind program in Houston that provides
an intensive educational program with a 2:1 or 3:2 student/teacher ratio
for children with all forms of developmental disabilities, birth
through age eighteen. We are always ready to build a program that is
100% tailored to to our students' needs, to meet them where they are
here and now, and to help them grow to meet their fullest potential. (Click here to see a video of our mission in action!)
Why should I run for The Arbor?

rely heavily on our general operating fundraising to meet the needs of
our mission and program. THAT is why every dollar raised makes an
impact. But there is more!
When you run for The Arbor, you also receive some pretty sweet perks! When you raise $350, you will receive:
- A Team Arbor t-shirt! (We're known for our shirts!)
- When we approach race day, we'll send you a dry fit Team Arbor shirt to sport on the marathon course!
You'll have some of the best cheerleaders as you pass our hoopla
station on race day, giving you that added boost of encouragement to
So... will you join our team? With every dollar raised, you are helping to make our mission possible! Thank you!
