Welcome to SEARCH's House of Tiny Treasures (HTT) home page!

SEARCH's House of Tiny Treasures (HTT) is an early childhood education program that provides developmentally focused childcare for pre-school age children while their parents attend classes and begin working. Nutritious meals, education and intensive art, play and traditional therapy fulfill student needs. Most client families reside in area shelters and other housing programs.
SEARCH's House of Tiny Treasures (HTT) is Houston's most recognized therapeutic center dedicated to providing this unique clientele with essential opportunities to prepare young children to succeed in school. Our goal is to equip each child with the skills needed to reach his or her maximum potential, and be prepared for kindergarten.
We assist families in attaining and maintaining self-sufficiency in order to break the cycle of homelessness. This is no easy task, but it can be achieved with the help of an array of quality early childhood educators and other professionals.

Through clothing and supply drives, we:

  • Continually gather household items, cloths, holiday gifts, coats, shoes, etc. for children and their families
  • Focus mainly on survival items
  • Always remember the siblings of those who are at SEARCH's HTT so that the child doesn't go back to the shelter, car, under the bridge or wherever they might be living with something, and the sibling gets nothing.

Without help, these children will be tomorrow's statistic, and they are too precious to ignore. Who better to coordinate the effort than the UHD College of Public Service (CPS)?

UHD CPS officially adopted the SEARCH's HTT as a joint challenge with SEARCH to make a difference by attacking the cause(s) of homelessness through research and, most importantly, just not forgetting the plight of the homeless.
