Community Initiatives

Community Partners

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston (BGCGH) and the Texans work together to help youth in our area reach their full potential. In 2016, the Texans made a gift of $750,000 to the BGCGH to open the Houston Texans Teen Club (HTTC) in the greater Heights area. The club, the first of its kind in the city, gives teens ages 14 to 18 a place to call their own. The club includes the CDW College and Career Playbook, a game room, a café, and the Houston Food Bank Market Pantry and provides a safe, fun, and engaging atmosphere for all.

The Texans partnership with the Houston Food Bank (HFB) is an important element in our mission to be Champions for Youth. The Texans focus on HFB programs that provide support to children, including Backpack Buddy, Cooking Matters, and Kids Café. The partnership provides opportunities for players, Cheerleaders, staff, and fans to give back to the 18 counties the HFB serves. The Houston Texans Café within the HFB provides a spot where volunteers can take a break during their shift.

The Houston Texans YMCA (HTY), located in Houston’s Greater Third Ward, is the heart of the partnership between the Texans and the YMCA of Greater Houston. Since opening in 2011 with a gift from the Texans, the facility has provided programs in health and wellness, youth sports, child care, and adult development to the community at little or no cost, with no individual in need turned away.
