HOPE HAVEN PREPPING HOMELESS COMMUNITY FOR COVID-19 VACCINE
HoustonChronicle.com | By Chevall Pryce, Staff Writer | February 3, 2021
HOPE Haven has kept steady operations during the COVID-19 pandemic, providing information, supplies, and opportunities for shelter to people who are homeless.
The northwest Houston area nonprofit is currently trying to work out costs and funding for their ambitious Transformation Station and Main Street America projects.
Main Street America is the organization’s planned 12-house community at 18750 I-45 in Spring, with 11 houses where clients transitioning out of homelessness can reside, and one house serving as a security base. Transformation Station is planned as an onsite facility that offers resources for clients, such as help developing skills and finding work.
Executive Director Kristyn Stillwell said the project is currently awaiting pricing to move forward. In the meantime, HOPE Haven is still working to help people who are homeless stay properly vaccinated and informed, partnering with Texas A&M University and Methodist Hospital to do wellness checks. HOPE Haven regularly visits homeless clients to help them with supplies and information, as well as offering possible options to find a permanent home.
We build relationships with individuals on the streets as a means to inspire a sense of purpose.
Unlike other programs, we view individuals holistically, addressing mental, spiritual, and physical health needs.
We provide life skills training and help connect with job readiness and job training programs.
Each person is surrounded by a mentorship team dedicated to their lifelong success.
