Support for LGBTQIA+ Youth
Perhaps our most popular Hatch Youth services are our drop-in groups! Groups are comprised of introductions, social time, programming, and small group, and are curated by Hatch staff and trained volunteer facilitators. Youth have access to role models and peer support and can participate in special projects and events, including Hatch Prom and walking in the annual Pride Houston 365 Parade. There are no costs for any activities.
Please keep in mind that these groups are not group therapy and aren’t a substitute for therapy. If you would like to learn more about counseling for youth, please call the Montrose Center’s main number or visit our Become a Client page.
