Help us achieve a Houston without homelessness

To ensure the safety of our staff, volunteers, and those we serve, SEARCH will be operating remotely and continuing to serve our clients. All events and volunteer activities have been canceled at this time. We can accept COVID-19 related in-kind items listed on the in-kind donation page by appointment only. Monetary donations will also be gratefully accepted.

If you are homeless and in need of assistance, please call our main line at 713-739-7752 or dial 211.
