Addressing the root causes of poverty through a holistic human development model

Christel House embodies the philosophy of 12th Century Philosopher, Maimonides—“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day.  Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”

Our Outcomes:

  • Our graduates have the dignity, comportment, values, skills and abilities to make a positive contribution to society
  • Our students stay in school, graduate, continue their studies and gain employment
  • Our commitment to students is often 18 years or more—from kindergarten to career
  • Our model creates a “multiplier effect,” as once the cycle of poverty is broken, all future generations benefit
Our structure ensures that 100% of donations support programs and services for children. Overhead and fundraising costs are covered by the organization's Founder.
