They provide opportunities to over 1200 children with disabilties and their families each year through the following programs: Christmas Lights Program The Mostyn Moreno Foundation's signature program is the “Christmas Lights” program. It benefits students enrolled in a Texas public school district’s life skills classrooms during the Christmas season. Unlike other programs that solicit toys to give to needy children, our program takes children to a local retail store so they may select and purchase their own Christmas gifts. This allows the children to use critical skills such as math, decision-making, social skills and other important life skills with the guidance of their teachers. Following each special shopping trip, the students and their families are provided a catered holiday luncheon with their teachers and Santa Claus. Community Connections Program The “Community Connections” program provides support and assistance to children with special needs and their families. The Foundation utilizes its relationships to connect families to their communities through charitable organizations, churches, and businesses. The assistance provided is based on an evaluation of information from school, church, family, friends, and employers. The Foundation and its partners develop a plan with the family outlining the families' goals to be accomplished, with the ultimate goal being self-sufficiency. Assistance to the family may include rent, utilities, furnishings, household items, clothing, toys, employment search, and other necessary items or services.
