Serving children since 1971


Tom “Tommy” Robinson founds a 501(c)(3) Christian home for boys with the help of Houston area friends and colleagues. He also donates 10 acres of land in Hockley, Texas. His wife, Mrs. Tom Robinson names the organization “Boys Country.” The initial campus includes three mobile buildings, a metallic building and its first dormitory under construction


Construction begins on a nearby 40-acre campus that will serve as the future home of Girls Country.


Plans are initiated to pilot an Independent Living Skills Program for older youth who have completed their adolescent years at Boys and Girls Country. The Independent Living Skills Program is renamed the College and Career program the following year. Thanks to generous continuing scholarships, all students who graduate from high school at Boys and Girls Country will now have the opportunity to be sponsored through trade school or college and into a first job.


Boys Country and Girls Country are combined on the Roberts Road campus and the organization is renamed Boys and Girls Country of Houston, Inc. The College and Career program moves to the former Girls Country campus. 


Boys and Girls Country establishes a $6 million endowment campaign to facilitate capital improvements to the campus and strengthen our future—a vitally important step in securing the financial well-being of our mission.


The capital campaign concludes with the dedication of the Operations Center in February. The College and Career Campus is renovated in June and July to add housing for 17 new graduates from the class of 2006.


The Penny Loyd Student Life Center opens in August, serving as a hub for campus activities – from education to recreation.
