Lambda Center Houston

Lambda Center Today

In 2008 Lambda Center celebrated the 30th Anniversary of its founding!

Today Lambda Center is sustained on the $15 monthly dues of its supporting members, and contributions from each independent group and the generosity of members who make additional donations. From time to time we have fundraisers to afford repairs to the roof, air-conditioning system and other emergencies. There are currently 180 members. The Center is guided by four corporate officers (appointed) and a Board of Directors (elected by and for the supporting membership).

All through our history there has been far more to bring our membership together than just meetings. We have had shows, dances, bake sales, ice cream socials, spaghetti dinners, movie nights, pajama parties, three-legged races in high heels. Our own game shows - The Dysfunctional Dating Game, The Dysfunctional Family Feud and even late night meetings where dress codes dictated wigs and moo-moos. The mirrored ball in our main meeting room is no mere prop - we use it often. Lambda Center Rocks!

One of the biggest celebrations is our annual Thanksgiving Gratitude Meeting and Dinner. After the regular noon meeting, this annual Dinner is usually attended by over 300 family and friends from all over the country. A huge traditional turkey dinner is prepared and served to our members and guests.

This is the kick-off event for the Houston Roundup recovery conference that extends through the entire holiday weekend. While the conference is another entity complete and apart from Lambda Center, it signifies still another out-reach effort to contribute to the solidarity of the gay recovery community.

Lambda Center is part and parcel of a larger recovery community in Houston. We do not seek to compartmentalize ourselves; many of us are of service to the greater recovery communityundefinedlocally and worldwide. We participate in a broad base of services to the greater Houston area as a whole. We have the support of the entire community. For that we are very grateful and very proud.

And we are still growing.
