Lambda Center Houston

A New Organization

A charter was drawn, by-laws were submitted and Lambda Center officially became a tax-exempt, non-profit organization on April 14, 1978. It's stated purpose was to provide a meeting place and safe haven for recovering gay alcoholics, their families and friends, and to support the newcomer in recovery.

The seedling that had been planted just three years earlier now began to grow. Meetings for gay men and women was an idea that had come to fruition. Winds of change were now stirring throughout the entire recovery community.

By the start of summer 1978, there were ten autonomous meetings at the new center. Attendance had risen from eight to 20 attendees to approximately 20 to 40 people per meeting. Soon it became clear that Lambda Center Houston needed a bigger home.
