About Us

Navidad en el Barrio is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization dedicated to the application of tax-deductible private donations to events designed to improve the life of the less fortunate in our communities.

Navidad en el Barrio has been providing these events since 1987 in the greater Houston area. The premier event, our Christmas Program, provides entertainment, lunch, and gifts to disadvantaged school children selected from throughout Houston Independent School District (HISD). An essay contest provides the children with the opportunity to win additional gifts, such as bicycles, in return for a winning essay. In 2001, this event distributed more than $50,000 in gifts to roughly 2,200 school children.

In 1999, Navidad en el Barrio began expanding the Christmas Program to other cities throughout Texas and has held successful events in Laredo and San Antonio.

In 2000, Navidad en el Barrio introduced Snow Day in Texas, an event which allows children in selected communities to play all day in the "snow". In this year, The Young-At-Heart Party was introduced to bring joy to seniors in difficult living situations.
