SEARCH Homeless Services is an ecumenical, faith-based nonprofit organization founded in 1989 to respond to the growing number of people experiencing homelessness in Houston.
A coalition of congregations representing diverse ethnic, social, and spiritual backgrounds offered critical support for individuals and families who were homeless and concentrated on one question:
How do you empower an individual to focus beyond mere survival, and work toward a happy, healthy, and most importantly, independent life?
SEARCH has become the leading homeless service provider in the Greater Houston community, serving approximately 9,000 men, women and children each year.
The hallmark of the SEARCH mission is its flexibility and focus on the needs of each individual.
Today, the challenges we face are substantially greater than those of the past. Lack of affordable housing, reduced public assistance, health insurance cutbacks, and wages not keeping up with the cost of living all contribute to an increase in the homeless population.
Texans Step Up
Homelessness is an urgent crisis. It is unacceptable that people in our community must survive on the streets. SEARCH has accomplished a great deal, but much more must be done. By providing the opportunities and resources to help people get back on their feet, we are investing in our community’s quality of life tomorrow.
Your support is critical to SEARCH’s success. Please join our mission of providing hope, creating opportunity, and transforming lives by making a donation online or sending your gift to:
