Houston, TX – The Mostyn Moreno Foundation announced today the selection of Port Arthur’s Monte Osburn as the organization’s new Executive Director Mr. Osburn will assist the foundation’s creators, Houston attorneys Steve and Amber Mostyn, in their mission to improve the lives of needy children across East Texas and greater Gulf Coast region.
Osburn brings extensive knowledge of issues related to children, education, the disabled community, and non-profit leadership to the Mostyn Moreno Foundation. For over 21 years, Mr. Osburn has worked as a licensed child care administrator providing services to hundreds of abused, neglected, and disabled children from across the state. He was most recently the Executive Director of Hughen Center in Port Arthur, Texas.
At the Hughen Center, Osburn’ s career highlights include the creation of an adult day care center, extensive renovations, and turning around the organization’s financial future. Mr. Osburn is also credited with creating the open-enrollment Bob Hope Charter School.
“I am very proud of our record at the Hughen Center, and the decision to leave was not an easy one,” said Osburn. “That’s why I am excited that one of my first duties at the Mostyn Moreno Foundation will be to work with my former colleagues at the Hughen Center in developing a new facility, thanks to a generous multi-million dollar gift from Steve and Amber Mostyn,” he continued.
“Amber and I are very fortunate that Monte accepted our offer to come work together and make a real difference,” said Houston lawyer Steve Mostyn. “We founded the Mostyn Moreno Foundation to honor the legacies of two people – my mother Glenda Jean Mostyn, and our friend Joe E. Moreno. They both cared so much about spreading joy and love, and that is what inspires us to work with special needs children across East Texas and the Gulf Coast. Monte is going to help us take that work to the next level.”
“Amber and Steve Mostyn are great people with such generous hearts. They have so many ideas and so many charities they want to help, and I am thrilled to be able to work with them to make a difference in our communities,” Osburn concluded.
In addition to his previous work at Port Arthur’s Hughen Center, Mr. Osburn serves on the Texas Task Force for Special Needs Children’s Transitioning Subcommittee. He is a member of the Texas A&M Former Students Association, Texas Aggie Band Association, the Fraternal Order of Eagles Aerie #3743 and was recently elected to the board of directors of the North Port Arthur Rotary Club. He is a lifetime member of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo and serves on the Special Children’s committee and Transportation committee.
