History
Today, the Center for Houston's Future is an independent 501(c)(3) organization bringing together business and other communities on behalf of the future of Houston and the region.

The Center's strategic goals involve: Ongoing Research in the Region, Cultivating Regional Leadership, Collaborations on Programs, and Community Engagement.

The Center for Houston’s Future (the Center) was founded in 1992 as a nonprofit research organization of the Greater Houston Partnership (The Partnership). The Center was redeveloped as an independent affiliate of the Partnership in January 2000 under the leadership of Founding Chairman, Eugene H. Vaughan.

As an independent affiliate of the Partnership, the Center’s initial task was to undertake a Business-Civic Leadership Workshop to develop scenarios for the future of the Houston region. The workshop’s primary finding was to expand the scope and expectations of the Center to address business-civic leadership development as well as long-range strategic planning for the region as well.

Since then, the Center has tackled numerous big picture issues for the region through policy research, strategic planning, and collaboration.

In the Spring of 2008, the Center developed a new vision statement to advance the Houston region as one of the top ten global communities in which to live and work.
