Financial  ​Assistance

It is part of our mission to make sure that no one leaves here hungry so we have food available from our Food Pantry. 

If you have a need for emergency clothing we can provide you a voucher for use in our Second Blessing Resale store. 
For those in need, we provide financial aid to help with the cost of rent, mortgage, or utilities.  

Persons seeking assistance must make an appointment. Please call us at 713-977-9942 weekdays to schedule your next day appointment. The number of appointments we can schedule per day is limited.

Seasonal Programs

Local agencies offer information services to clients, including health care information, benefits enrollment, and mental health care assistance. 
Seasonal programs include a ​Back-to- School Program, which distributes school supplies to students Pre-K through 12th grade and Easter Baskets donated from a coalition church. Our Holiday Meals Program provides Thanksgiving and Christmas meal ingredients and grocery gift cards to those in need. We also have a Holiday Program that provides toys and gift cards for clients’ school-age children, and Adopt-A-Family, which selects thirty families each year to be adopted by businesses and families from the community.
