Our Vision Community
Northeast Houston: Community Works is a city-reaching organization impacting lives across the greater Houston area in many ways. However, a three-zip- code radius of 77016, 77028, and 77078 comprises the target area or “vision community” of Community Works.
In our immediate area of 77028, some key demographics are as follows:
- Median household income is $27,000
- 57% of households are headed by single parent head-of- household
- Average family size is 4
- 97% of students (formerly North Forest ISD) qualify for free / reduced lunch
North Forest / Homestead Road
Homestead Road is well-known to North Forest natives and it’s still home to those who’ve left but have come back to help.
Our community is 66% African American, 34% Hispanic, and 10% other.
