The Houston Community ToolBank is a nonprofit tool lending program that provides fellow not-for-profit organizations with year-round access to an inventory of tools for use in volunteer projects and facility and grounds maintenance.
We host a monthly open house (the third Thursday of every month) to visit our warehouse, and learn more out about our tool lending program. Gain tips for improving on the success of your volunteer projects. Membership is free to join.
Access to ToolBank tools eliminates the need for agencies to incur the expense of purchasing, repairing, renting, and storing tools, reducing the costs associated with service projects and allowing these agencies to focus more of their resources on their mission.
Steps for Students is an annual archdiocesan-wide event where all school and parish communities can come together as one to support Catholic education. The goal of Steps for Students is to raise awareness of the importance of a Catholic education and provide much needed resources for our Catholic Schools.

Love Bought International is a non-profit, 501(c)(3), orphan care and poverty eradication. For 7 years we ran a soup kitchen in an impoverished village outside Bogota, Colombia. During this time we fed over 140 children a day and impacted the community in many ways. We taught them to dream and work towards a better future. We taught community health and parenting classes and about social responsibility. We even obtained healthcare for some of the children who desperately needed it. However, we felt called to do more. In November 2013 we transitioned to building an orphanage. We purchased 4.5 acres of land in Bogota! Our plan is to build a home for 300+ children and a school. Our goal isn’t only to meet their basic needs, but to provide a loving home, build identities, lives and bright futures.
We will be hosting our 3rd annual gala, The Orphan Hero Banquet, on April 2, 2016. Hundreds of community members will be gathering to support the impact and change Love Bought is bringing. We invite you to be a part of this life changing work by joining us this evening .
