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.
The 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.

Why should I run for The Arbor?
Programs at The Arbor don't come with a small price tag. The results we achieve take a real investment by way of incredible staff and individualized educational plans for every student in our care. And while The Arbor does charge tuition, on average, tuition only covers about 65% of our total operating costs. The Arbor receives no government funding, and we 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 finish strong!
So... will you join our team? With every dollar raised, you are helping to make our mission possible! Thank you!
