Operation: Keep Warm

All across the US and in every community there are families struggling to meet their basic needs, so our ministry helps by donating coats and warm clothing to local area Ministries.

We love our four-legged friends and help our local animal shelters to feed and house pets, so we donate food, blankets, newspapers, toys, etc.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

We are honored to be able to volunteer with such a wonderful organization.

The Star of Hope realized during the 1980’s that an emergency shelter was not enough help for many homeless individuals. They would keep coming back after leaving the shelter, unable to maintain an independent life-style.

So, in 1988, the Star of Hope Mission began the Transitional Living Center to help prepare and train the homeless to become independent and re-enter the mainstream of society.

TLC located at 6801 Ardmore in Houston, Texas is able to provide services to 66 families and 45 single women!

We provide jello, pudding cups and water as a good night snack to the individuals housed there. We also donate diapers, towels and deodorant.

Population(s) Served
Adults

We are happy to be able to help those at the Veterans Support Organization. The chapters in various states across the United States are changing the lives of so many by offering jobs and transitional housing, providing funding to local VA's and other veterans support groups. Their mission is to get struggling veterans off the streets and give them opportunities to improve their lives.

We donate clothing and toiletries and to help them continue to support those that some may have forgotten.

Population(s) Served
Adults

We adopt nominated families for the Thanksgiving holiday and provide them with a complete meal.

Population(s) Served

Socks for Soldiers, Inc. is a 501C(3) Non Profit Charity organization that is about sending gifts of love to our soldiers in the Middle East. We host a drive to collect much needed socks, toiletries and other items.

Population(s) Served

We deliver blessing bags to the homeless and less fortunate which include food, water, toiletries, etc.

We enjoy visiting with the people and knowing we are making a difference in their lives.

We not only donate wreaths, but also join Wreaths Across America - Houston and help to place wreaths on Veterans' graves!

Population(s) Served

Blanket drives aren't just warm for the recipients of the donations. They're pretty warming for the people who organize the efforts, too.

We help the homeless and less fortunate by donating blankets, coats and socks.

Goals & Strategy

Learn about the organization's key goals, strategies, capabilities, and progress.

Charting impact

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

We are dedicated to giving back to our community and helping to build strong morals and values in children.

We strive to run monthly and annual campaigns to help those mentioned in our mission statement. To date we have accomplished this.

We started Club Littlest Helpers to help us reach the youth aged 5-15 and we also ask their parents to help us with our monthly and annual campaigns.

So far, we have accomplished every goal we have set for ourselves, however, there is much work to be done in the ministry field and unfortunately, it is a never ending job. One that we are happy to do!

Last updated: 11/07/2019

Policies and practices developed in partnership with Equity in the Center, a project that works to shift mindsets, practices, and systems within the social sector to increase racial equity. Learn more

Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
