Connie Citizen founded Reinforcing Houston in 2015. Although this organization may be fairly new, Connie is no stranger to adversity. She grew up being witness to and victim of physical, verbal, emotional, and substance abuse. She was bullied, neglected, and abandoned many times in her childhood and throughout her life. This caused her to suffer from depression, identity issues, low self-esteem, body image issues, and feelings of loneliness, disparity, and hopelessness. After becoming an adult, she realized that she was unfortunately following in the same footsteps and repeating the same destructive behaviors that she had been subjected to as a child. She knew she wanted to do better, but she just didn’t know where to start or what to do and she didn’t have anyone to ask for help or give her the support that she needed to change her situation. She was on her own. Connie was determined to break the cycle of dysfunction and poverty that she was born into so she enrolled herself into college courses and worked several jobs to provide for herself and her son. She knew God had destined her for something greater so she could not give up despite the many obstacles she faced. Today, Ms. Citizen has her Bachelors of Science in psychology from the University of Phoenix and she is currently pursuing her Masters of Social Work degree at Simmons College. She is also a Certified Christian Counselor and a Certified Community Health Worker. Through the experiences of her own life, Connie is dedicated to providing the support system for young adults that she never had. She is grateful for her own testimony because she can relate to what these young people are going through. She believes that there are many more young people out there who may be seeking a change in their lives and just need the education and empowerment to help get them there. She is very hands on with the daily operations of Reinforcing Houston and is passionate about improving the lives of the at-risk youths and young adults in her community. Connie, along with everyone on the Reinforcing Houston team, is passionate and dedicated to the mission of empowering, educating, and inspiring teens and young adults to be reach their full potential despite their past and present circumstances. Sometimes it takes having a strong support system to show someone that they really do have what it takes to succeed and that their life matters. This is an immense task and no one person can do it alone. It’s going to take all of us working together to help guide and reinforce Houston’s youth!

Mission: Reinforcing Houston is a non-profit organization that partners with the community to educate and empower at-risk teens and young adults.

"You were born with potential.
You were born with goodness and trust. You were born with ideals and dreams. You were born with greatness.
You were born with wings.
You are not meant for crawling, so don't.
You have wings.
Learn to use them and fly."

Welcome #Summer2019!!! As hard as you've worked, sacrificed, and given during the first half of this year, make sure you take some time to #unwind, #unplug, and #recenter yourself. Summer is a great time to get #outside (with sunscreen), spend time with #family and #friends, or take a #vacation/#staycation. You don't have to have or spend a lot of #money to enjoy yourself! Even if you're a #native #Houstonian, chances are there are STILL a lot about this #great #city that you have yet to #learn, experience, or explore!! #Commit to getting out of your #comfortzone this summer!

Are you ready to move out of your #comfortzone ? No progress happens there. Move past your fear into #unlimited #possibilities

#Mentoring is not always easy, but is well worth the effort, because there is someone who needs to hear what YOU have to say, and can learn from YOUR experience, but you've got to step #OUT of that old way of thinking.

As we begin 2019, it's important to have goals and a #vision for what you see for your future. Don't be a #passive #observer in your #life, but instead, be an #active #participant in the #direction of your life. Don't like how your life is going? #ChangeIt
#ReinforcingHouston wants to help #atrisk #teens and #youngadults do just that. Sometimes #people want to #dobetter, but they don't #knowhow. Having a #mentor can help #tremendously. Someone who #understands, can #relate, and doesn't #judge.

If you are going to gym the everyday, eating healthy, and maintaining a low body fat percentage, but ignoring your mental health needs then you are doing yourself a disservice. Mental illness is real and too often stigmatized and ignored in minority communities.
