SEARCH pursues a mission of providing hope, creating opportunity, and transforming lives of men, women, and children who are trying to break free from the cycle of poverty and homelessness. We bring this mission to life every day by helping our clients obtain permanent housing, increase their income, improve their health, develop their children, and ultimately achieve independence.
SEARCH maintains a vision of a Houston without homelessness.

Every decision that we make, whether related to client matters or operational matters, is tested and measured against these values.

Learning Organization – We foster education, innovation, and discovery.
Integrity – We do the right thing and make the right choice.
Trust – We are credible, competent, and keep our commitments.
