community organizations

St. George's Episcopal Church has helped to found two organizations to help serve the wider community, both of which now function largely independently. The church maintains its connection to these organizations by having representation on their governing Boards.

St. George's Episcopal School

St. George's Episcopal School began in 1966 as a ministry of St. George's Episcopal Church. Initially, the school offered a morning program for children ages 3 to 5, which was primarily attended by children of the church's parishioners. Over the years, St. George's has become a full-day school serving a diverse population of students of many faiths, and hundreds of children have taken their first steps in their educational journey at St. George's. The school offers a strong academic structure, disciplinary guidelines, moral and spiritual nurturing, all within a safe environment.

St. George's Church is represented in the school though membership on the board of directors; providing support to the school, including the use of its facilities and grounds; and offering spiritual guidance through the rector's frequent presence, including weekly chapel services.

St. George's Court

St. George's Court was established in 1985 through the vision of the Rev. Rev. John W. Price, then rector of St. George's Church, and funding from the Diocese of Texas and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The Court is an affordable residential community for the elderly and persons with disabilities, consisting of 56 one-bedroom and four two-bedroom apartments in nine residential buildings. Nine of the apartments offer barrier-free accommodations for residents in wheelchairs.

St. George's Court is owned and operated by St. George's Senior Housing, Inc., a nonprofit organization affiliated with St. George's Church. Its board is composed of both members and non-members of St. George's. A full-time professional social services coordinator provides resident services and coordinates social activities.
