The Glenda Jean Mostyn and Joe E. Moreno Educational Foundation supports, promotes and operates programs , projects, and collaborative efforts in Texas, primarily in Houston and the Gulf Coast region, that serve to encourage the abilities of children with special needs.

The Foundation was created by successful Houston trial lawyers Amber and Steve Mostyn to honor the memory of two caring and generous Texans: Glenda Jean Mostyn, mother, grandmother, sister and educator in East Texas and Texas State Representative Joe E. Moreno, son, brother, friend and legislator. Both cared very deeply about education and providing the best for children of Texas.

The Foundation’s focus is specifically on children with special needs and supports our community through a “Christmas Lights” program - an experiential life skill training program, our “Community of Opportunities” program – a special needs child assistance program for families, and support of the Hughen Center - a residential childcare facility for the physically disabled in Port Arthur, Texas.

Your gift has a wide reaching effect.  Through your donation, you have influenced the special needs community for the better.
