Houston Hope is a collaborative effort with every day people, churches and corporations to provide critical support to Rebuild, Restore and Reset the lives of individuals living in Houston Texas. The missions trip will occur 4 - 8 weeks after the water recedes and restoration services begins for millions of of people in the region Houston. Texas.
We are coordinating efforts to locate 3-5 families to help rebuild, restore and reset their lives in the region. We are coordinating with a church in the region to identify families and/or individuals that desperately need the touch of God and the physical support of our generosity.
Houston Hope will focus individuals and families without insurance, struggling to qualify for federal government assistance and local critical support.
All church and organizational partners will be responsible to organize the collections of funds and new clothes, new household goods, new furniture and building supplies for the restoration of Houston, Tx and individual families in the region.
Each church or organization will be supplied with a trailer onsite at their facility to collect and store donations for for transportations to Houston. The collection period will be 4 - 8 weeks prior to the scheduled pickup and convoy to Houston Texas. We are coordinating the following donations:

Other initiative will include suppling the Houston Food BanK with food resources for continued support for the community. The Houston Food Bank has a history of providing disaster relief, but we've never seen devastation on this scale.
We will provide food and supplies in the short term and for many months to come to residents in southeast Texas who will struggle to rebuild their lives. The Food Bank will work closely with our efforts to ensure food is getting to those who need it most. We also find ways to connect individuals during our missions trip to support the families spiritually and connect them to a local church.
Once trailer will be designated for the Houston Food Bank.
