The Gathering Outreach Community Center (GOCC) is a nonprofit 501c3 organization, founded in 2012 to stand in the gap of hopelessness, depression, low self-esteem, loneliness, and anxiety. GOCC is the voice of LOVE, an advocate of HOPE! We take great pride in creating togetherness, wholeness, and opportunities that serve our mission to enhance the quality of life for the community! Providing social support, education, development, fine arts, sports and recreational activities for adults and children are some of the many ways we extend our love.


After School Programs








Gathering Outreach Community Center offers a variety of after-school mentorship community programs through Gathering Kids(™). Our programs are fee-based; however, we do offer scholarships and a sliding fee schedule for low-income families. Named BEST After School Mentorship Program of Pearland for two consecutive years, recognized by Alvin ISD as a Business Community Partner and a 5-star rating with parent testimonies; we know the program is making a difference, one child at a time and one home at a time. Gathering Kids is located at Glenn York Elementary and Wilder Elementary. Transportation is available for students who do not attend York or Wilder. 

Our GK programs are designed to enhance social skills that foster teamwork, increase confidence and self-esteem in children. Students enrolled in a Gathering Kids program will have the support of a dedicated and loving team of professionals that will ensure students are learning, creating and being productive within our goal-driven environment in all GK programs, after school. More importantly, students will have space and platform to feel comfortable and free to share their feelings, dreams, and fears with a GK mentor. Our GK Team of professionals understand their role as a child mentor and are equipped to listen and support every child, every day, after school. We believe that every child deserves to have outlets that offer ways to express energy, talent, and creativity while being motivated to live with hope and wholeness.
