Our Mission

Located just minutes from Houston’s Johnson Space Center and aptly named in honor of the Atlantis Space Shuttle mission flown by Astronaut  Thomas J. Hennen, Executive Director and co-founder of our 501©(3) not-for-profit organization, The Atlantis Foundation has offered unique and innovative educational and residential services since 1997.

By carefully analyzing each person’s particular educational needs, providing access to the full array of services that are available to all students, we foster an environment whereby every person is nurtured, loved, and provided the skills necessary to reach their greatest potential.

Our programs are results-based and center on building personal self-esteem and independence. This process provides the ideal framework for our clientele to achieve the fundamental educational and vocational objectives critical to their overall success and prosperity.

Our Foundation strives to ensure that all the individuals that we serve experience all the joy of love, home, neighborhood, and the utmost quality of life.  This philosophy assures the active involvement of our clients in their community and reinforces the collective success of the individual, family, and community, prospering together.
