Basic Needs

Houston Endowment supports efforts to help people live independent, self-sufficient lives. At times, people may need assistance with the basic needs to build or rebuild such a life. At other times, temporary assistance with basic needs can help people manage unexpected crises so that they can return to self-sufficiency instead of falling into a more desperate situation. The foundation invests in three focus areas, each characterized by a desired outcome.  Grantseekers should select one of the following areas as the primary focus of their applications:

Basic Human Needs: People have their basic needs (food, clothing, shelter) met as a first step toward gaining independence.

Basic Social Needs: People receive the legal, financial and wellness services needed to begin to build or rebuild independent lives.

Crisis Intervention: People effectively manage unexpected financial crises by obtaining temporary assistance for expenses related to shelter, food, energy and/or transportation.
