Connect Community works to ensure that every kid and adult in Sharpstown/Gulfton will lead a healthy, prosperous life in a safe and vibrant neighborhood. Together with KIPP Houston, Parkleta will transform an intersection into a gathering place for the community through the installation of playful crosswalks, outdoor musical instruments, seating areas and interactive sidewalks. This new play and gathering space would serve almost 2,000 kids a year.
