Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Compassion United seeks to serve the poor, the unsheltered, the at-risk children and youth, and the addicted through outreach, relief, and empowerment. Basically, we go where the "are"(outreach), meet an immediate need (relief), and work to empower them toward self-sustainability.
In so doing, we will see our communities transformed.

We are in the process of building a campus called "Miracle City."
Now in Phase One of construction, Miracle City will be a first-of-its-kind, whole-person transformation community for Montgomery County uniquely focused on serving the forgotten, marginalized and hopeless. Once complete, the five-acre campus will allow people to live and work in a graced-based, inspiring environment where they’ll develop emotional and spiritual maturity, life skills and work experience as they discover abundant life.
Miracle City will consist of transitional and supportive, short and long-term housing with built-in support services and empowerment opportunities. In addition, it will house a welding shop, carpentry shop, auto repair shop, food pantry, clothing closet, and so much more.

Much of what we endeavor to accomplish on the Miracle City campus is already being done. We have been operating outreach programs, transitional housing, and empowerment programs for 16 years. Relocating to Miracle City will increase our capacity to do so.
In addition to that, we have developed programming and increased staff to prepare for the the greater capacity.
We have also added to our board of directors.

In 2019, 5 acres of land was donated by the City of Conroe to construct this campus.
in 2020, Compassion United was awarded a $1.25 Million Community Development Block Grant to construct our 12,000 sq ft Day Center. In early 2021, we began construction of our 5600 sq ft Empowerment Center. Also in 2021, HomeAid Houston selected our first transition home as a project to begin contraction in the third quarter of 2022.
All-in-all, Compassion United has secured $2.65 million for the Miracle City project, not including the construction of the transition home.
