Children, Youth and Family Services in Houston
In 2009, the Hogg Foundation awarded eight three-year grants totaling $7.8 million to provide mental health prevention, early identification and intervention, and treatment services in schools and community settings such as daycare and transitional living centers. The programs involve 27 local nonprofit and government agencies. They are serving an estimated 10,000 children and youth in high-need areas of Houston and Harris County.
One of the eight grantees, DePelchin Children’s Center, used the grant to implement an evidence-based culturally competent intervention to support children in the Spring Branch area of Houston. Read the summary report to learn more about the impact of this program.
Check back in the coming months to read reports and key findings from the other grantees in this program.
