The Houston chapter has been in operation since 2005 running different programs to relieve the youth homelessness. We started with Street Outreach at the Montrose neighborhood by reaching out to the homeless youth and giving them non-perishable food, clothing and hygiene products. In 2011, we were fortunate to obtain a center to accomplish our Drop-In program. Through the Drop-in center, the clients have a safe place to socialize, to enjoy a hot meal and to take with them basic necessities such as hygiene supplies, clothing, shoes and food. For a few hours at the center, the youth can take the advantage of our services and resources. We provide help in obtaining ID, resume preparation, and resources for housing. Our third program, Housing Support, emerged in 2013 to provide food and housing supplies to clients who were able to obtain housing through various grants.
The schedule for the programs are as follows:
Street Outreach: Sunday evenings from 4:00 – 5:30 PM
Drop-in Center: TBD
Housing Support: during weekends, coordinated by the chapter’s Housing Support Co-Directors
