About

Hope Center Houston is a faith-based nonprofit, offering a safe space and caring community, while providing resources for men and women experiencing homelessness.

We nurture the body with breakfast, lunch, laundry, showers, and clothing, while assisting with

medical and mental health needs.

 

We offer life-skills classes, counseling, AA, and referrals to support efforts to transition off of the streets.

We offer prayer, Bible study, and chapel to encourage and support spiritual needs.

 

Other services include mail service, Wifi and computer access, allowing guests to conduct job searches and connect with family. 

                We are located at 821 Peakwood, Houston, Texas 77090.  Our regular hours of operation are 9 a.m. - 3 p.m., Monday-Friday.

define their future, and change their world.

History

Reach for the Stars

In 2015, members of St. Dunstan’s Episcopal Church became aware of the growing number of people experiencing homelessness in our area. Forming a task force, they created a 501(c)(3) corporation, found a strip center location and began a homeless ministry.  The 1960 Hope Center opened its doors on August 29, 2016.

The ministry quickly grew with support from more than 20 churches. Initially, hospitality was our focus, providing “Dignity Through Hospitality.” As the ministry matured, we increased our services, focusing on life development support, including life-skills classes,  support groups and one-on–one mentoring.

More than 3,000 unique homeless individuals were served in the first three years of the Center. Several hundred made significant strides in overcoming addictions, acquiring jobs and finding affordable housing. In August 2019, we became Hope Center Houston and acquired a new facility, allowing us to  provide additional services and opportunities for supporting agencies to come alongside our mission.
