Ensuring a Brighter Future in Houston for Generations to Come
Since 1994 RaiseUp Families has been preventing homelessness by providing financial assistance to parents of school aged children in the Greater Houston area while helping them attain higher income jobs and teaching invaluable budgeting skills. This leads parents to become self-sufficient - prepared for future financial challenges where they will not have to utilize social services again. Our relational and individualized care gives parents the training and confidence to realize a better future for their children.
This better future starts with allowing a child to focus on their education instead of worrying about financial stresses at home. An education is the one gift that, once given, can never be taken away. It opens up opportunities that the undereducated simply do not have and ensures a brighter future for generations to come.
Our team consists of highly motivated and skilled specialists who know how to deal with any issue that you may come across. This includes providing financial assistance and counseling, budgeting classes, rental assistance, and other financial support programs. This creates a basis for lasting relationships with our clients built on trust and mutual understanding. We are devoted to creating unique and innovative financial solutions to residents of Houston along with the high-quality supporting services.

"We were expecting a baby when my husband was let go from his job. We were going to lose our house but by the grace of God we found RaiseUp Families. They helped us a lot and if it wasn’t for the program we would have lost everything. We thank you with all of our hearts."
Luis and Eloisa Bustamante
"The most helpful program within the RaiseUp Families was the monthly peer groups. Just hearing other stories and being able to voice our own stories really helped to get through day to day life."
"The rental assistance program helped us the most because it allowed us to stay here in our home when me and my husband were both recovering from COVID. And the second best was the budget part of the program which allowed us to gain tools on how to manage our money properly."
Our vision for growth came sooner than expected when a tornado hit our office building back in January, forcing us to search for a new home. We are so excited to share our NEW HOME with all of you. This would not be possible without the support of our community. Drop in for a few minutes or a few hours and enjoy appetizers, desserts and drinks in celebration of Raising Up Families in our community.
