The Houston Young Lawyers Foundation was created in 1992 to support the charitable programs of young lawyers in Harris County. The Foundation's mission is to support and encourage education and programs that promote and aid an improved system for the administration of justice in Harris County, Texas and assist those in need. In 1998, the Foundation Board of Trustees established a Fellowship program in order to both recognize distinguished lawyers and provide an additional source of revenue to fund charitable programs.
In addition to the Grant Program, other programs that are the cornerstones of HYLF's commitment to making a difference include: Adopt an Angel; Fellows Program; Fun Run; Golf Tournament; and Law Day. For more information about these programs, click on the tab corresponding to each program.
