Monte Osburn was selected as the foundation’s executive director in October 2011. He assists the foundation’s board 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 foundation. For over 25 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.
“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 on how they can 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 in licensed child care environments, Mr. Osburn has served on the Texas Task Force for Special Needs Children’s Transitioning Subcommittee and the Houston Commission on Disabilities. He currently serves as a member of the Houston Independent Police Oversight Board and as a board member of Bum Phillips Charities. He is a member of the Texas A&M Former Students Association and Texas Aggie Band Association. He is a lifetime member of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.
