SEARCH was founded in 1989 as a faith-based nonprofit organization, supported by a small Council of Congregations.
Today, the Council of Congregations has grown to include more than 30 organizations of multiple faiths across Houston and Harris County. They are committed to supporting SEARCH Homeless Services and its mission by providing spiritual guidance, volunteers, in-kind resources, and opportunities for people in need.
SEARCH is Another Way to Spell Bless!
