Local Mercy

Just as Christ gave Himself for us, so we should give ourselves up for the sake of others. Below is a list of ways to get involved in local mercy within our community.

Rivertree Academy is a Christian independent school located in the Lake Como Community of Fort Worth, Texas. Rivertree Academy exists to serve Christ by educating his children. We believe that children of Rivertree will go on to be agents for change in their communities, and the best way to achieve that goal is to teach them to Learn, Love, Work, and Lead Well. Our students attend on scholarships, because of our many generous partners and donors who make this education possible!

Volunteer Opportunities:

  • After School Buddies – assist in tutoring, homework, and leading clubs
  • Student Mentors – encouragement, support and spiritual guidance for 1st and 2nd graders, provided virtually for now
  • Reading Buddies – read one-on-one with a student

  • Parent University Group Facilitators – assist in the education and support of Rivertree families a few times a month every Spring on topics of parenting, spiritual formation, and racial reconciliation

The NET's mission is to develop healthy, restorative relationships with the people in our community who need a network of support the most. Through our three core programs serving folks experiencing homelessness, low-income refugee kids, and women who have experienced sexual exploitation, we are able to provide 38 relationship building events every single month. Everyone in Fort Worth deserves to be seen, known, and loved, and it’s The NET's desire to make sure that’s the case.
