89.3 KSBJ Receives Community Partner of the Year Award

HOUSTON, Texas (October 20, 2020) – 89.3 KSBJ is honored to have been named Community Partner of the Year by the Texas Alliance of Child and Family Services (TACFS).  Harris County Protective Services (HCPS) nominated KSBJ as a result of a multi-year partnership serving the needs of foster children and children involved with Texas Child Protective Services.

Due to this partnership, BEAR (BE A Resource for CPS kids) served a record-breaking number of children during the past holiday season.  11,484 children under the care of Child Protective Services received gifts and toys.  Each year, BEAR, a program of HCPS, provides brand-new gifts to thousands of children through donations and in-kind gifts.

This past Christmas, however, marked an unprecedented year of support for BEAR, according to TACFS.  Faithful KSBJ listeners sponsored 7,200 children and also donated nearly $25,000 so BEAR could purchase items on children’s wish lists.  Christian Music broadcasters around the country, Capitol Christian Music Group, artist Danny Gokey, and KSBJ also donated toys purchased from Amazon.

Several years ago, KSBJ began collaborating with HCPS, DFPS, and the foster care community to raise awareness of children in the foster care system with an initiative called “Fostering Hope.”  The call to action for the community was: “While we are not all called to foster or adopt, we are all called to do something.”

Wise, Weird & Welcome: Learning and Leading with the Lepers and the Locust Eaters

We’ve all read the same books about teamwork, leadership, communication, and culture that everybody reads. We’ve mastered Maxwell, studied Sanborn, Sinek, and Sun Tzu, and liberally cribbed Collins in aborted attempts to go from good to great, but…

How’s that working out for you? 

What if you left St. Louis with an entirely new lens through which to view and act upon improvements in:

Let’s examine how this all connects together, but approach it from an entirely different angle. Don’t just think outside the box. Kick the box to the curb and start at zero.
