Fifth Floor Team

The Fifth Floor is an initiative started by the HRC to reach into our community and our world to understand and engage our neighbors in the love of God, love of neighbor, and love of learning through compassionate service and genuine love for the enrichment of our shared life together.

Fifth Floor 2016-17

This plays out in various tangible ways:

  • Multiple times a week, we join with our friends in East Waco at the Estella Maxey housing complex where we tutor children, get to know their families, and have an enjoyable afternoon playing with them.
  • We are partnered with the Straw to Bread program on the Nyakach Plateau in southern Kenya. Straw to Bread was started by Dr. Lisa Baker to provide medical care to and continue friendship with the people of the Nyakach Plateau.
  • The HRC has a deep commitment to the people of the Northern Triangle of Central America. This is also the location of our spring break mission trip, where students travel with a faculty member to do research and service with the people of Guatemala. The goal of this ongoing project is to support and empathize with local organizations that work in Guatemala.
  • Through these initiatives, we hope to extend the work of the HRC beyond the four physical floors of the Honors Residential College buildings into the Waco community and beyond to the rest of the world.
