The Montrose Center

The Montrose Center was founded in 1978 as Montrose Counseling Center to address the gap in accessible and affirming mental health services for gay men and lesbians. The Center was one of the first to respond to the emergence of HIV and AIDS in the 1980’s and continues to provide HIV counseling, case management, housing and emergency financial assistance.

Other services include intensive outpatient treatment for alcohol and chemical dependency [Way Out Recovery Program]; violence survivor services regarding domestic violence, sexual assault and hate crimes; and most recently — programs designed specifically to meet the needs of youth age 13-20 [Hatch Youth], and seniors age 60+ [SPRY: Seniors Preparing for Rainbow Years]. Our LGBT Switchboard 24-hour help line is accessible 24-hours for crisis intervention, peer phone counseling, and information/referral.

The Center provides health education and disease prevention outreach to more than 40,000 individuals each year, and offers training to schools, corporations and healthcare professionals on these topics as well as general LGBT and diversity issues.

In recent years, since our relocation to 401 Branard Street, the Center has become Houston’s hub for LGBT community events and organizing, with 6800 sq.ft. of affordable lease and single use rent space. Resident organizations include PFLAG-Houston, Lesbian Health Initiative, Pride Houston, and Dignity Houston.

With free wellness and learning classes and activities hosted regularly by the Center, plus meetings and events hosted by dozens of other social, civic and nonprofit groups, there is literally something for everyone happening at the Center nearly every day.

The Center is an affiliated agency of United Way of Greater Houston and accredited by The Joint Commission in behavioral health.
