Send a Note of Encouragement

Donations HoustonWhat would you say if you had the opportunity to share a few words of encouragement with a child receiving care at Star of Hope? This is an opportunity for you to do just that.

Next month children from Women & Family Emergency Shelter, Transitional Living Center and New Horizons will head back to school.  Thanks to the generous support of friends and donors, every one of these children will step onto the bus and into their classroom with everything they need to succeed. New school uniforms, new shoes and a backpack full of supplies!

You can add to their excitement and joy by writing a short note of encouragement for the school age children at Star of Hope. Please take a moment and “Leave a comment” on this blog. We will print your note, along with others we receive, and give them to the children before the first day of school.

Thanks for caring and making a difference in these children's lives!

I came upon this sight because i want to help, how neat that i can leave a message also. Here it goes... know that God is with you always even when it may seem like he is not........I think its because he is busy whispering in other peoples ears and touching there hearts, those people who can help to do something. Continue to pray and never forget GOD is Love and loving. Have a blessed school year.
