We were founded by PFLAG-Houston and H.A.T.C.H., and we have been a separate organization from PFLAG-Houston and H.A.T.C.H. since 1999, and HATCH has become part of the Montrose Center. Since 1999, we have retained strong ties with both organizations.

PFLAG-Houston still provides funding for a scholarship, and H.A.T.C.H. students are recipients of many of our scholarships. Like PFLAG and H.A.T.C.H., we are dedicated to improving the lives of young LGBTQ+ individuals.
