View to the Past, Eye to the Future

Mental Health Care for Future Generations

To commemorate our first 25 years, Krist Samaritan Center proudly introduces Windows of Opportunity, an endowment fund for the future sustainability of the Center. We've dedicated 25 window panes in our lobby to memorialize this important milestone in our history. We invite you to become part of this history by sponsoring a window pane and paving the way of serving the greater Houston community.

Sponsorship of a Krist Samaritan Center window pane demonstrates your personal or professional dedication to our cause. Sponsorship is also a perfect way to honor a friend or family member, including those working toward positive mental health or contributing to the mental health field, as well as celebrating life milestones or lives that have ended.

A limited number of window panes are available. Call 281.480.7554 x2728 today to reserve your legacy. 

Krist Samaritan Center thanks our Board President Walter Christopherson and his family, the first Windows of Opportunity patrons, for their generous contribution of $50,000.

Sponsorship Levels
•	$50,000+ (One sponsor per window)
•	$25,000+ (Two sponsors per window)
•	$10,000+ (Three sponsors per window)

MindWorks Testing

The school year has officially begun, and students are busy with classes, homework and tests. For children who experience test-taking anxiety — also known as performance anxiety — no amount of studying can prevent the nausea, lightheadedness, headaches and feelings of anger or helplessness that can occur during testing situations. Test-taking anxiety can lead to panic attacks and low self-esteem. The staff at Krist Samaritan Center can teach your child coping strategies and test-taking techniques to combat these symptoms and ensure a successful school year.

To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call 281.480.7554 x2752 or call directly at 281.956.2752.
