Client Services via Teletherapy

As the Center continues to monitor updates from the CDC and local government regarding COVID-19, we want to ensure the health and safety of those we serve while continuing to offer critical services to the community. Keeping this in mind, we highly encourage that clients take advantage of using teletherapy for their appointments. Ask your therapist or case manager for more details, and read more about checking in for your teletherapy appointment here.

Client Payment Online

We are now offering client payment online via PayPal and Doxy. Please visit our Client Payment Form on our secure site to pay for services through PayPal. If you have questions, please contact your therapist.

Legacy Community Health Clinic

The Legacy Community Health Clinic on the Third Floor will be closed until April 1. We will reevaluate then and assess whether we are able to reopen the clinic. The California St. location remains open. Please call ahead to ask about services: (832) 548-5100.

Community Center Closures

The Montrose Center continues to monitor all incoming updates regarding COVID-19. Our Community Center meeting spaces host events vital to the LGBTQ community where even still, in 2020, such safe spaces are in short supply, but our community’s health is our top priority. 

As such, the Community Center will be closed until Harris County’s Stay Home, Work Safe order is lifted. Once the Community Center reopens, organizations or groups that would like to host meetings of less than 50 people will be able to do so.

We apologize for any inconvenience that these changes cause you or your organization. We wish all who utilize our Community Center the utmost health and safety and look forward to accommodating your rental needs in the future. Please stay tuned as more updates may develop in future days.

Thank you for helping us to keep our community safe. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Don’L Nicol, Community Center Lead, at
