Gaining Ground helps to inspire At-Risk youth in Houston, Texas to reach higher than they believe is possible and provides ongoing guidance and support to these youth for years to come. Gaining Ground is a Houston, Texas based organization working with troubled and At Risk youth to give them a chance to do more than dream. The youth we serve are 12 – 24 years old that come from challenging situations and unfortunate circumstances which may include parental addiction/imprisonment, abuse or single parent homes. Many of these youth may also face obstacles such as gangs, drugs/alcohol, violence and juvenile delinquency. Our organization continues to strive on reaching resources and volunteer staff in order to reach more troubled youth every year.
