I love history, so I thought I would share a little with you. Next Thursday will be the 102nd Thanksgiving that the kitchens of Star of Hope have served meals to Houston's homeless. This Thanksgiving picture was taken sometime around 1912. The captions read: "Big, free Thanksgiving dinner. Here is where we feed'em. The Mission is open eighteen hours a day, and the Star of Hope shines brightly to all who come."
Star of Hope has always been more than a soup kitchen and place to sleep.... so much more than "3 hots and a cot." Even in the early days the Mission focused on helping men find jobs and putting families back together. Today, our programs cover the entire continuum of care from helping homeless men and women get off of the streets to long-term affordable housing.
