World Homeless Weekend

Every year in October, cities across the globe observe World Homeless Day. Its purpose is to draw attention to the needs of people experiencing homelessness and provide opportunities for communities to get involved in responding to this urgent humanitarian issue.

SEARCH Homeless Services and its Council of Congregations invite faith groups across the Houston area to participate in World Homeless Weekend – a time for you to do one thing with your congregation to raise awareness, provide service opportunities, pray, or advocate for some of the most marginalized and vulnerable members of our city.

With many faith communities joining in a simultaneous effort, you can make an enormous collective impact. Because of the commitment of the 100+ partners of The Way Home to solving homelessness in Harris, Fort Bend, and Montgomery counties, we are expanding the concept to World Homeless Weekend and we hope you will join us!


This year World Homeless Weekend will be held on

October 8 – 10, 2021.

To commit to participation, click here.

Your faith community can:

  • Take a special offering to donate to agencies working with people experiencing homelessness
  • Collect goods (see list of needed goods) to donate to homeless services agencies
  • Make “survival kits” (see list of helpful items)  to hand out to people on the street
  • Offer a specific prayer during worship services
  • Share our “How To Talk To Your Children About Homelessness” guide with families
  • Feature a speaker from a local service agency to educate on homelessness in Houston
  • Print and distribute an updated “Facts & Figures” brochure on homelessness, or share other information about homelessness with your congregation
  • Commit to volunteer at a homeless services agency

SEARCH will provide information, materials, and ideas to help facilitate this process. Let us know your commitment – email Ben Moore at or click here to sign up!
