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. Thank you to the the amazing community members who donated! Because of you, we surpassed our goal, more than covering the budget deficit of the rapid rehousing program. Because of your partnership, we will get 60 local, homeless LGBTQ youth off the streets of Houston and into safe, stable housing in the next 12 months. We can’t thank you enough!!!
Watch Party Sept 25

Meet Our Youth
Click here to read Deion, Crimson, and Isaac's stories.
LGBTQ youth are more than twice as likely to experience homelessness than their straight peers. 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 community fundraisers cancelled this year. With your help, we will meet the budget deficit for the program and get 60 youth off the streets of Houston.
You Can Help
We are looking for 100 amazing community members to help spread the word and encourage loved ones to join them in getting local LGBTQ homeless youth into safe, stable housing. You may be surprised who will help, if you will simply ask. Start your fundraising team today!
To get started, click here or the 'I Want to Fundraise For This' button. Want to learn more about participating? Check out our Tutorial video. Center staff will be available throughout the process, and the online Team Toolbox contains sample emails, social media posts, shareable graphics, etc.
All donors to the campaign will be given a link to enjoy the Housing Our Future Watch Party on September 25 at 7p, which will feature some amazing local and international talent.
