Kia Shands, ELPS Nonprofit Founder

I remember volunteering for my mom’s (Elnora Lynn Perry Shands - ELPS) educational events as a tutor for underprivileged families with kids in the inner city as a twelve-year-old throughout my Graduate school years.  My mom provided food to the kids and various educational tools and resources/information to them.  It helped them excel in their studies during each school year.  Even though I opted to work in the corporate and technology fields for over 20+ years. I knew that I had a passion for education and helping the communities around me. As of today, I have the opportunity to continue my mother’s legacy with the Homework  Hotline Program (flagship) and various youth programs in the DFW Texas area.  I’m super excited to take our flagship educational program throughout the entire state of Texas and in the future throughout every state in the USA and globally one day.  It definitely takes a village to raise children these days.  If you feel the importance of children/youth programs for underprivileged families in Texas, please support the ELPS Foundation (501c3 certified nonprofit) as a sponsor/donor and/or volunteer today.


UPDATE for Jan 2023 - ELPS Foundation will provide tutoring services via online for interested families with kids that do not qualify as an underprivileged family in the state of Texas.  The rate is $100 per hour for any subject and/or grade level.  Please feel free to reach out to us regarding the details, if interested.
