Mission Statement

The Telos Project is a nonprofit public-benefit corporation. We aim to remove barriers to therapeutic, mental health, and community services in the state of Texas. Our ultimate objective is to reduce individual psychological turmoil and empower the communities we serve.

Our ongoing goal is to provide quality mental health services to all people, regardless of economic status.



Our vision at the Telos Project is to provide therapeutic services to communities who lack access to quality, professional, competent mental health care. Stigma and poverty often prevent access to these services.  Our dedicated staff will become a leader in mental health services and nurture children, families, and elderly persons, giving them the tools to resiliently live and thrive.


Creative client-specific approaches to care


Core Values

Innovation Grows Hope

The Telos Project is dedicated to growing hope within the communities we serve through innovative care. We believe in creative client-specific approaches to care, taking into account cutting edge models in mental health, therapy, and community development.

Accessibility Builds Trust

We understand offering services which are welcoming, culturally respectful, and inclusive is critical to creating a successful relationship with a client or community. We strive to build an equitable and inclusive space for anyone who walks through the doors of our center for a local community meeting or private session.

Responsive and focused service delivery creates outstanding care

Our team is committed to an ethic of timely, efficient, and reliable service to the community and our individual clients. We believe our clients deserve a spiritually rich and compassionate environment where they feel heard, safe, respected, and supported.

Collaborative work promotes Stakeholder Investment

We understand our work is a partnership, not just with our colleagues and grantees, but also with clients, families, and community groups. We work together with our Board Members to set goals, identify priorities, and continually evaluate the results of our work.

Integrity and Accountability are our Foundations

We hold ourselves accountable to our clients. We believe in modeling trust and integrity with a high regard for the value and honor of life. This reflects an alignment between what we say, what we do, and how we do it.
