Iris’ Story | La Historia de Iris – Friends of Four Corners


Some of you may have heard Iris’ testimonial of the impact Friends of Four Corners has had on her life, but we want to share her story for those who may not have heard.

“I can do it, you can do it too.”

Iris owns a restaurant in a gas station in the Four Corners area in Houston. We met her after surveying the Four Corners community and bringing an ESL class to meet their requested needs.

She serves as an incredible example of awakening potential and provoking transformation. Iris continues in our ESL class and tells others “I can do it, you can do it too”.

Iris is one of many residents being impacted through our efforts in our “Friends of” Communities. To help continue the cycle of empowerment, click here to donate.


This story is an example of just one of the many lives being impacted throughout our communities. We are so greatful for your generous support and commitment to helping us break the cycle of generational poverty.
