Ways to Give

At The Center for Success and Independence, every day we save the lives of area youths. We see the potential of these teens, how they can become productive and flourishing members of society. At The Center our clients get back on track educationally and learn the tools they need to be successful on their journey to recovery.

The Center helps hundreds of teens and their families each year. We reach thousands more by training authorities in organization across Harris County and surrounding areas on best practices for interacting with teens. Demand for our services continues to exceed our space; as a result, many teens are waitlisted until room becomes available. We have sustained our growth virtually on our own. Over 90% of our funding comes from private insurance and other direct income. And over 90% of the donations given to The Center go directly to help our clients.

To expand, we rely upon generous donors like you. Philanthropic dollars will provide the seed funding for capital expansion, special programs, and to help those who cannot pay for needed services. We are dedicated to keeping the cost to families low, ensuring financial means is never a barrier to getting a teen the help they need.

With your support, we can reach the many more teens and families who need us.

We invite you to join us in our mission to provide hope to these teens and their families.
