About Us!



Growing.... just like the sunflowers in Tara's garden!

The Tara "Boom" Houston Children's Foundation, affectionately known now as Taraboom, is a living legacy to Scott & Sheri's beautiful daughter Tara. When you meet the Houstons, feel free to ask them where the "Boom" came from and how lovingly those that knew Tara called her same.

A unique one of a kind foundation that is in place to directly assist families financially in unimaginable times.

Taraboom's goal is to help eliminate some of the financial barriers that may prevent or impede access to treatment and detract from the quality of life for these children and their families.

New Website Launch

Taraboom is "staffed" by some pretty amazing people that have been with the Foundation since its beginning. It is their love of Tara, admiration of the Houstons and their genuine desire to make a difference that has kept the Foundation strong and growing.

We've proudly been around for over 10 years now and with that have had a few facelifts over the years and lots of amazing changes, people and support come our way.

Through your support and this website we are genuinely touched each and everytime Taraboom touches the heart of another.
