Our Annual Fundraising Gala is an event planned by a newly founded Houston-based 501(c)(3) non-profit to inform the community what our organization, The Troubled Movement, Inc. has planned for teens and young adults around the world and raise money for our programs and upcoming events. This year’s theme is “Spring Into The Future”.
Did you know?
1 in 4 girls are sexually abused before the age of 18 and 34% are abused by a family member.
Suicide is the third leading cause of death for teenagers age 12-18. 20% of those are depressed.
By age 23, up to 41 percent of American adolescents and young adults have been arrested at least once for something other than a minor traffic violation.
The Troubled Movement is here to help the teens and young adults suffering from the troubled stage they feel like they can’t escape. As a survivor of sexual assault, depression, and a fatherless teenage life, I know firsthand how difficult it is to reach out to your family, friends, or the community. The fear of embarrassment and judgement overwhelms teenagers and causes them to suffer in silence. We are here to say, “Stop the violence. Release the silence.” This year we will have a special award ceremony for the winners of our 2018 L.E.N.S Scholarship. Dinner will be served. Silent auctions and raffles will take place. There will be a videographer and photo booth for memorable moments. Most of all there will be a chance for the community of Houston and surrounding areas to come together and do something positive for our youth. Vendor opportunities also available. We want our attendees to leave this gala filled with assurance that this movement will impact teens and young adults around the world.
