Event Details

On October 31, Texas Low Income Housing Information Service will honor four outstanding individuals and one remarkable institution at the 2017 Texas Houser Awards. The awards recognize those committed to the cause of housing justice as activists, community leaders and policymakers, as well as those who tell the stories of communities fighting for a decent neighborhood and affordable home. Our five awardees are leading the charge in expanding housing opportunity and civil rights for low income Texans, and we are proud to recognize them as Texas Housers.

The awards luncheon, held at the historic Zilker Clubhouse in Austin, is the major conclave of those committed to the advancement of housing justice around our state. This year, we honor the following advocates and journalists from around the state:

David Hall, Texas RioGrande Legal Aid

Sandy Rollins, Texas Tenants Union

Juliana Gonzales, Austin Tenants Council

Rose Wilson, Lubbock NAACP and Legal Aid of Northwest Texas

The Houston Chronicle

Please join us to help honor these outstanding Housers! All proceeds Houser Awards benefit the work of Texas Low Income Housing Information Service, supporting low-income Texans' efforts to achieve the American dream of a decent, affordable home in a quality neighborhood.

Lunch will be provided by Ruby's BBQ.

There are only around 50 parking spaces available at Zilker Clubhouse and parking is not permitted outside the main gate, so guests are strongly encouraged to carpool or use other forms of transit.
