Houston Endowment supports efforts that lead people toward lives of greater
independence and fulfillment.
Comprehensive and collaborative human services are critical to the social
support network that underlies a great city. They provide critical prevention,
intervention, management and treatment strategies that assist people as they
manage crises, overcome obstacles or achieve personal and professional goals.
The foundation supports a broad array of organizations and programs that
provide for greater Houston’s most vulnerable populations, while assisting
individuals, families and communities as they seek improved lives of
greater independence, productivity and enjoyment. Because it addresses so
many different service offerings, the foundation has grouped them in the six
categories described below.
