Every year Texas Housers, the Texas Low Income Housing Information Service, a 501(c)(3) corporation, presents three Houser Awards to Texans whose efforts help low income persons attain secure, safe, and decent housing in quality neighborhoods.
Texas Housers announced District 5 Councilmember Teri Castillo as the recipient for one of the 2023 awards, in recognition of her housing advocacy to secure funding for public housing, prioritizing increased funding for home rehab programs, affordable housing, and flood mitigation.
“We must continue to organize with our community to continue to build a San Antonio that works for all of us.” The District 5 Councilwoman continued, “I am honored to receive this recognition for the work our District 5 team does every day, as we advocate for dignified and affordable housing for all San Antonians.”
The Houser Award will be presented at a ceremony with affordable housing residents, advocates, and professionals at the Austin Public Library on February 21, 2023. More information on Texas Housers can be found at
