Join us for the 2023 Texas Houser Awards on February 21 at 12pm!

You are cordially invited to our annual Texas Houser Awards luncheon that will be held on Tuesday, February 21 at 12:00 pm at the Austin Central Library to honor organizations and individuals who have worked tirelessly to make the dream of quality housing an achievable reality for all Texans.

The Texas Houser Award recognizes Texans dedicated to achieving a just and caring society where all people have access to decent housing in a quality neighborhood.

This year, we are honored to present Texas Houser Awards to:

Northeast Action Collective

The Northeast Action Collective has shown a spotlight on civil rights discrimination and injustices happening in Houston and Harris County and issued a clarion call for equitable storm drainage and recovery from natural disaster. The grassroots, bilingual, community-minded group is committed to building a more equitable Houston via direct action and neighborhood organizing.

Diana McIver
Executive Director, DMA Companies (@DianaMcIver)

Diana McIver has committed her career to affordable housing development across the country that promotes the safety and dignity of low-income people in their home. A lifelong advocate for low-income housing, Diana has worked tirelessly toward legislative changes for affordable housing, as a affordable housing creator herself, and additionally has created special needs housing for decades.

Teri Castillo
Council Member, San Antonio District 5 (@210TeriCastillo)

Teri Castillo’s strength in bringing neighbors together around preserving historic public housing, protecting low-income people’s ability to retain the homes they own, and advocating government accountability led to her winning a seat on San Antonio’s city council, from which she continues housing advocacy. Teri’s work as a local organizer for many years shapes her work as a city council member in San Antonio and a fierce fighter for low-income households on the West Side and all of SA.

Our three awardees this year are powerful examples of how low-income residents and advocates can come together to expand housing opportunity and civil rights. We are proud to recognize them as Texas Housers.
