The Jameson Center provides volunteer opportunities for individuals or couples in providing emergency shelter care for runaway and homeless youth, 17 years of age and younger, needing temporary support as family emergencies are resolved and family reunification activities are pursued. Host Homes are facilitated through our Jameson Center Program and accessed by youth through an agreement between their parent or guardian and the Host Home Family. Specialized orientation and ongoing support is provided to Host Homes.
Host Homes are dedicated to Grace (1924-2012) and Henry “Hank” Jameson (1917-1988), Galveston civic leaders who dedicated their lives to family, community and humanity. Grace was a pioneering Texas Child Psychiatrist whose long-term commitment to The Children’s Center, Inc. continues to this day. Hank, a veterinarian and also a child advocate, provided leadership to the Galveston Independent School District and the Board of Directors of the Albertine Yeager Children’s Home.
