LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD

THE HAMILL FOUNDATION

For nearly thirty years, The Hamill Foundation has generously supported The Council on Recovery, providing crucial support to help us deliver on our mission. A true believer in the urgency of our cause, contributions from The Hamill Foundation have helped us to expand our reach, advance our programming, and – most importantly – keep our promise to the community never to turn anyone away. Their support has directly impacted every program and service offered by The Council and touched the lives of innumerable families.

 

THE HAMILL FOUNDATION

Since 1991, The Hamill Foundation’s steadfast support has sustained The Council’s most fundamental operations. In 1999, The Hamill Foundation supported The Council’s first-ever capital campaign to help us secure our permanent home on Jackson Hill. During our Restoring Hope, Rebuilding Lives campaign to transform our campus, The Hamill Foundation stepped up again, making a $750,000 commitment to build urgently needed venue space to accommodate recovery support meetings, community education, and trainings. Today, The Hamill Foundation Conference Center remains a vibrant and essential part of The Council’s campus, hosting more than 25,000 attendees annually. Whether offering additional support following a crisis like Hurricane Harvey, or helping to close the gap in response to funding shortfalls, the commitment of The Hamill Foundation to addressing addiction and co-occurring disorders is nothing short of transformative.

THE HAMILL FOUNDATION

Established by Houston oilman, Claud Hamill and his wife, Marie in 1969, The Hamill Foundation has been dedicated to serving the Houston community.  The Hamill Foundation is one of Houston’s largest foundations and has distributed more than $150 million to Houston non-profits since being fully funded by the Hamills’ estates. For their steadfast support, The Council on Recovery is proud to present our Lifetime Achievement Award to The Hamill Foundation.

GIVE TODAY

Your gift to The Council in support of The Waggoners Foundation Speaker Series helps families to recover, regardless of their ability to pay.
With your help, we can keep our promise never to turn anyone away.
