Summer 2018 Executive Director Notes

Houston children summer programs Texas

The summer at OCWH is off to a great start! Did you know that the Outreach Center is open over 400 hours annually and the doors are opened over 10,000 times a month with over 620 adults and children flowing through the Center? The non-profits that call the Center home offer an array of programs and services all throughout the year. AA recovery groups were even meeting during the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. We’re glad to be part of a community that values the services that our non-profits provide and that we are able to offer our facility at an affordable, low cost to our tenant agencies. We couldn’t do it without your support!

Double Your Impact this Summer – Over $15,000 raised toward our $28,000 goal!

During the summer we are striving to eliminate our building debt so we can look forward to enhancing and maximizing our community presence and services to our non-profit agencies.

Won’t you join us in reaching this historic goal to eliminate the building debt? Every donation received will be matched dollar for dollar. Donate today!
