Get Involved

We believe that your involvement with TPH is not by accident. The Potter’s House is a place where people like you unite as one, and through God’s Spirit, have done what appeared impossible. Your willingness to give of your time and resources make it possible for The Potter’s House to exist. We are grateful for all you have done and continue to do. You have been a conduit of God’s blessing upon The Potter’s House. Thank YOU!


80% of The Potter's House budget is met through donations. 56% of that comes from individual donors; we need you.


Hundreds of volunteers serve each year. This allows our per student cost to be much lower than surrounding schools.

Prayer Team

The Potter's House has been fueled by a committed group of prayer warriors since the very beginning. Join the SHIELD.


Partners connect with students in The Potter’s House Partner Program and they bridge financial gaps for TPH families.
