The Parris Foundation began in honor of Parris Gaehring. A bright student who at 16 years old, tragically lost his life to gun violence.
To share in his spirit and values, we provide counseling for crime victims, college prep programs for first-generation students, and training to support individuals who want to make a difference.
Providing integrated behavioral health and wellness services for crime victims and survivors.
Giving students the opportunity to fund their college career in honor of Parris’ legacy.
Training on a wide variety of topics to equip the community and mental health professionals.
Uplifting the next generation of students through academic studies and college prep.
We’ve seen it happen through Parris’ life and through countless others we’ve served in Houston and across the country.
We began as a grassroots organization to honor Parris’ legacy. That will never change. But we also equally celebrate the resiliency of individuals just like Parris, who have the strength to choose a positive path despite their hardship.
The greater Houston region will always be our home and we love the people in it. Wherever “home” is for you, it should be a place full of endless opportunity for every child, neighbor, and loved one.
