Celebrating 50 years of our mission!

Dear friend, this year Boys and Girls Country is celebrating 50 years! It is an unbelievable blessing to be able to serve children from families in crisis for half a century. With your faithful support, lives have been changed, educational barriers have been demolished and cycles of trauma have ended. God has provided Boys and Girls Country with everything to grow from a small patch of land into an amazing facility supporting the lives of our cottage families, College & Career program and staff. We are blessed and excited to invite you to the Heritage Awards Dinner this year to honor Steve Stephens and his philanthropic impact on our community. Boys and Girls Country relies on your support to ensure that, together, we can provide for the children from families in crisis for another 50 years! You can support our event by becoming an underwriter or by making a donation (choose Heritage Award Dinner in the dropdown). Contact Shannon Smith for more: 281.290.1288 or

Steve is married to Anne-Laure, and they have four children: Thibault, Stewart, Hunter and Sarah. Steve attended Texas Christian University and received his Bachelor’s of Business Administration in Accounting from the University of Houston. Anne-Laure is a dedicated mother and wife raising four children, in addition to supporting the kids and families of BGC.

Steve and Anne-Laure devote their time, talent and treasure to multiple causes that strengthen Houston’s community. Currently, Steve serves as a board member at Boys and Girls Country, University of Houston’s Board of Visitors and Bauer College Board, as well as the United Way of Greater Houston Board of Trustees. In addition, he supports Houston Methodist as a chairperson of the President’s Leadership Council.
