A long-standing nonprofit in Houston announced an office relocation in early August as officials move forward with a new work structure that includes a smaller office footprint.
Founded in 1904, Family Houston has spent the last 118 years working to help families with basic needs by providing services, such as on-site mental health care, veteran support and financial stability.
In an Aug. 1 press release, officials announced a relocation from their 22,000-square-foot building at 4625 Lilian St., Houston, to a new shared space at 4950 Memorial Drive, Houston.
“Our original building had so much history and sentimental value, but it was time for a change,” CEO Charly Weldon said in a statement. “Our work environment and needs have changed, and from a business perspective, it made more sense to share a space with another nonprofit that shares our passion for the Houston community.”
Family Houston now shares its new office space with DePelchin Children's Center. Family Houston offers client services on the first floor of the office and houses the administrative team on the third floor.
The move followed a re-evaluation of space needs after the coronavirus pandemic forced the office to shut down in 2020, according to the release.
Family Houston also has offices in Montgomery, Fort Bend and Waller counties as well as in the Spring Branch and Bay areas that will remain open.
