Houston’s LGBTQ Community is Housing Our Future!

Presented by Noble Energy

The Montrose Center’s Housing Our Future peer-to-peer team fundraising campaign provides help, hope, and a second chance to LGBTQ homeless youth in Houston. 

Every dollar raised will benefit youth rapid rehousing services, including 18 months of rent, furniture, and comprehensive case management to help LGBTQ youth start adulthood with independence and success. Since the pandemic began, the need for this program has steadily increased.

A tremendous THANK YOU to JIM SPEARS for providing a $50K matching gift for the campaign. Thanks to your generosity, every dollar of the match was met, and we are closer than ever to our goal. We need you to get to the finish line!

Watch Party Sept 25

All donors and volunteer to the campaign will be given a link to enjoy the Housing Our Future Watch Party on September 25.

Urgent Need

LGBTQ youth are more than twice as likely to experience homelessness as straight youth. As many as 40% of homeless youth identify as LGBTQ. Since the pandemic began, we’ve seen an increase in the number of youth in need, and funding for the program has decreased, with the majority of in-person events being cancelled this year. With your help, we will meet the budget deficit for this program and get 60 youth off the streets of Houston.

Magic of Team Fundraising

Team fundraising is an opportunity for a community of individuals to harness the power of our collective networks. Teams are comprised of individual fundraisers who share their giving pages, encouraging friends, colleagues, and loved ones to join us in support of this important work. With every new member of every new team, our reach grows exponentially.

We Need You

We are looking for 100 amazing community members to volunteer to spread the word and encourage their loved ones to join them in providing a second chance to local LGBTQ homeless youth. You may be surprised who will donate to this great cause, if you will simply ask.

Staff will be available throughout the process, providing email and social media templates for you to share, as well as any other assistance you may need.
