TETHER Smart City Concept Visual.jpg


T.E.T.H.E.R stands for Technology, Education, Treatment, Housing, Entrepreneurship, and Resources. A Mission-Driven Comprehensive Smart Community Development Project – The Texas Greenhouse Project envisions the creation of a Smart City as a transformative next step following our successful establishment of transitional housing. This ambitious initiative aims to extend our impact, creating a self-sustaining, technologically advanced community that continues to serve and uplift underrepresented demographics, including LGBTQIA+ young adults between the ages of 19-24 aging out of foster care. The TGP 'Smart City' development aims to house a minimum of 1,000 residents.


Integrating Advanced Technology with Community Values — Our Smart City will harness cutting-edge technology to enhance the quality of life for its residents. This includes implementing sustainable energy solutions, smart transportation systems, and digital infrastructure that promotes efficiency and connectivity. By integrating these technologies with our core values of inclusivity and support, we will create a city that is not only smart in technology but also in its social fabric.

Self-Sustaining Ecosystem

At the heart of our Smart City is the concept of self-sustainability. We plan to integrate agricultural programs and green spaces that promote environmental stewardship and provide residents with fresh, locally-sourced food. Our city will also feature retail spaces and business opportunities, encouraging economic growth and providing employment opportunities for our residents.

Prioritizing Social Justice and Economic Prosperity — Our vision goes beyond mere technological advancement; we aim to build a city that is socially just and economically prosperous. This means creating affordable, quality housing and ensuring that all residents have access to essential services and opportunities. By prioritizing diversity and equity, we aim to set a new standard for how cities can be developed to serve the needs of all community members, especially those who have historically been marginalized.

to thriving

From Transitional Housing to Thriving Community — The Smart City represents the evolution of TGP's mission. It's a leap from providing immediate shelter and support to establishing a long-term, stable environment where all of its residents can thrive. This city will be a beacon of hope and a model for future community development, showcasing how technology, when combined with a deep commitment to social values, can create a thriving, inclusive community.



Empowering Residents for a Brighter Future: In our Smart City, every resident will have the opportunity to contribute to and benefit from its growth. We believe in empowering our community members with not just a place to live, but a place to grow, learn, and prosper. This city will be a testament to what can be achieved when we combine compassion with innovation, creating a future where everyone, regardless of their background, has the opportunity to thrive. Our vision encompasses an inclusive environment where technology, education, and community services work hand in hand to uplift every individual.
