We are a leading educational services provider dedicated to eliminating the gaps within childhood educational needs and services.
Yancy uses specialized on-campus events, increased communication, and systematic outreach to create a two-way street where schools, families, and communities actively work together, creating networks of shared responsibility for student success.
To create strong school communities by cementing the development of life skills, academic excellence, parent engagement, civic leadership,
creative arts, and multi-media exploration while promoting higher education for all students with an emphasis on at-risk youth.
A Yancy Life was inspired by the life-changing academic mentorship delivered by Mary Yancy, better known as Momma, who survived a lifetime with only a primary school education. Despite the struggles of her life, Momma Yancy was a happy, spirited woman who blessed every life she touched. She served as a mentor and grandmother figure to youth in the Houston community. Through community service and a kind spirit, she saved many young souls from being lost, which plagues our neighborhoods and communities. Upon our incorporation as a 501c3 nonprofit in 2003, A Yancy Life committed to continue Momma Yancy’s ministry and will continue uplifting for decades.
