Do you know someone who makes a real difference to the lives of the people of Houston?

We are looking for nominations for the HUG Awards. If you know someone with a heart of gold who goes the extra mile for Houston and its citizens please let us know.

We want to recognize their contribution with a $1000 grant.

Contact HUG


Are sponsored by Attorney Stewart J. Guss to honor those local men and women who make a special contribution to the community.

Each month we award a prize and each year we give one of the local heroes $1000.

They could be a teacher, a community leader, a policeman, a charity worker, a foster parent, a fund raiser; anyone at all whose selfless acts deserve to be talked about, recognized and celebrated.

Each month we award a HUG t-shirt and $100 recognition grant. Every year, the monthly winners are eligible for a $1000 grant to continue their good work or donate to the charity of their choice.

The HUG's are about celebrating our unsung heroes and sharing good news stories about the folk who make Houston great!
