Transform into the New YOU!

     Lillie Mae Wrenn Learning and Transformation Center is a 501C3 non-profit organization that strives to transform individuals that we believe are valuable, teachable and capable of taking charge of their destiny.

     Our Reentry program specializes in intense assessments, individual coaching and support group sessions to assure effectiveness to create personalized plans of action.

     "We are a community-driven organization that collaborates with other agencies and organizations." 

- Freelander Little -

     We include the entire family in our clients' transformation process. We offer after- school programs and youth outreach on the weekends for our clients' children. Our outreach initiatives aim to enhance community relations and community involvement towards positive change. We provide clothes (The Closet), basic computer classes, family- strengthening classes, men-to-men mentorship, food drives and youth education. 

     Our holistic approach to addressing our clients' needs allow us to provide programs and services to the entire family.  Building bridges of hope in our community. 

     Our primary clients are returning citizens whose stipulations upon release require rehabilitative initiatives through documented efforts.

     Therefore, we focus on family and youth mentoring, educational and referral services for adult and youth. We serve the Galveston and Houston areas and surrounding counties.



     Our team of professionals bring more than 30 years of experience in coaching returning citizens in life skills, preparation for reintegration, unification of families and personal development; more than 15 years of working with youth and community outreach. We have a Community Chaplain, certified substance abuse counselor and a licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor on hand. Our approach is from a holistic perspective in addressing our clients based on their individual needs.


     After the initial assessment takes place, we determine the individualized counseling session. We design each session according to the individual and their unique needs. We at Lillie Mae Wrenn do not believe that life is "one-size-fits-all!" And this is our approach. Our staff continues to educate themselves on the new clinical studies and techniques that have shown positive results from other professionals in the field; and we apply them accordingly. 


     We measure successful outcomes from the productivity within the first years of participating in one-on-one coaching, group participation, life skills training, personal development exercises and employment.
