Wednesday, June 14 from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. | Hilton Houston North

TNOYS’ anniversary Gala takes place at Houston Hilton North, the same venue as TNOYS’ Annual Conference. We invite you to join us to celebrate the changemakers who have made our work possible since 1980.

We have a memorable evening planned with great food, storytelling, and over $45,000 worth of raffle and silent auction prizes. We hope you’ll join us to support TNOYS’ work for Texas youth and young adults facing homelessness, foster care, and other at-risk situations. All funds raised will directly support youth and young adults through PEAKS Camp, TNOYS’ YALC, and our advocacy work.



Registration for the Gala is now closed, though a limited quantity of tickets will be available for purchase at TNOYS’ 40th Annual Conference on Services to Youth and Families. Please email with questions.



Celebrate with us in the ballroom at Hilton Houston North, located at 12400 Greenspoint Drive in Houston, Texas. The evening will include our annual member awards, raffles and a silent auction, storytelling, a plated dinner and open beer/ wine bar.

The event takes place the same week and at the same venue as TNOYS’ 40th Annual Conference on Services to Youth and Families. We encourage TNOYS members and other conference attendees to join!

The Gala will celebrate select individuals and organizations that have made our work possible over four decades:

  • Honoree Joel Levine is a longtime supporter of TNOYS, Executive Director of Harris County Resources for Children and Adults, and a 30-year veteran in youth services.
  • We will present our annual member awards to exemplary organizations and individuals from TNOYS’ statewide member network.


Raffle ticket sales for select prizes are now open to all, and you need not be present to win! Descriptions of the raffle prizes are in the Gala FAQs.

For over 40 years, Texas Network of Youth Services (TNOYS) has worked tirelessly to build better outcomes for our state’s most vulnerable yet resilient youth, young adults, and families. We represent and partner with a diverse network of over 80 Texas organizations working across seven system areas: housing and homelessness services, child welfare, justice, survivor services, health and behavioral health, education, and workforce.

Across everything we do, TNOYS’ work is guided by a deep commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and youth-adult partnership. We engage a diverse range of youth and young adults with lived experience in every aspect of our work, providing young people with opportunities to amplify their voices, shape systems-change, and grow as leaders.
