Emergency Shelters

If you are in need of a safe place to stay, there are several emergency shelters for teens in Texas than can help you. You can find a list of emergency shelters & other organizations that can help support you through a family crisis or being kicked out here.

If you are a pregnant teen and would like to continue your pregnancy, there are shelters that will house you throughout your pregnancy. For the Houston area, view a list here. If you need help finding a shelter, you can call our hotline at 866-999-5263 and one of our volunteers can help you look.

If you are a pregnant teen and would like to have an abortion and do not have a safe place to stay, call our 24/7 hotline at 1-866-999-5263, as not all shelters are supportive of abortion.
