Houston's youth face many challenges in preparing for productive adulthood. That is is particularly true for young men of color. Many indicators show that his group lags behind others on measures such as high school graduation rates, household income, employment and neighborhood safety. This group is also more likely to have encounters with law enforcement and the justice system. The My Brother's Keeper (MBK) initiative aims to address these inequitable conditions faced by boys and young men of color. MBK originated from the White House in 2014. Recognizing the inequitable conditions that boys and young men of color face throughout their lifetime, a coordinated national movement was launched. Find Out More About My Brother's Keeper

Child Advocates trains everyday people to advocate for the best interests of these children in court so they can find safe, permanent homes as quickly as possible.
