USO Houston provides a touch of home to over 45,000 troops and military families annually who pass through our USO centers at Bush Intercontinental Airport, Hobby Airport and Ellington Field Joint Reserve Base, while also offering morale-boosting and family-strengthening programs to the 8,000 Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Coast Guardsmen and their families who are based in Greater Houston and along the upper Texas Gulf Coast. More than 300 volunteers and an Advisory Council help three full-time staff members deliver goodness to our troops and their families year-round.
USO Houston is the local branch of the USO, a private, non-profit, non-governmental organization that has earned high marks from Charity Navigator, the Better Business Bureau, and GuideStar. According to the latest TellUSO survey of troops and military families, 93 percent agree the USO boosts morale and lets troops know America supports them. The USO’s most recent financial statements are available publicly at www.uso.org and our tax ID number is 13-1610451.
