The Harris Center is expanding! The Youth and Family Wellness Center will be our newest location serving District 141, which contains Northeast Houston and Humble. The Youth and Family Wellness Center will be a new concept for The Harris Center and will provide community members with comprehensive, holistic care with an expanded array of services. The goal of this expansion is to transform the lives of a historically under-served community by improving clinical outcomes, health literacy, and access to resources. Thanks to $10 million in ARPA funding from District 141, the Youth and Family Wellness Center will be able to provide residents with everything from integrative primary care services to inclusive yoga classes while serving a diverse range of ages and abilities.

The Youth and Family Wellness Center brings together each of the Strategic Plan’s Focus Areas: Quality, People, Integration, Access, Community, and Innovation. Through our expanded services, we will be able to address the systemic and intersectional issues that limit the effectiveness of behavioral and mental health interventions. This is an exciting new direction for The Harris Center, and we hope you will follow the NE Expansion’s progress.
