Hope Floats Up

My name is Erika Wise. I am the Director of Extended Services for Star of Hope Mission.  I accepted Christ when I was eleven year old.  After moving to Houston in 1992, I was hired as a Case Manager for Star of Hope’s TLC program. Since then, I have held many positions with Star of Hope and worked at several locations. 

In these last TWENTY years with Star of Hope, I have been able to see hurting families and individuals journey from “lost” to “found”.  One of my favorite movie quotes is from the movie “Hope Floats”—“Beginnings are scary. Endings are usually sad, but it’s what’s in the middle that counts. So, when you find yourself at the beginning, just give hope and chance to float up. And it will.”  My years at Star of Hope have taught me that HOPE certainly does float up and, those are the stories I want to share…

It's a God thing! I was just reading a news article that saddened me and I said a quick prayer asking God what I could do to help. He placed it upon my heart to look you up. Here you are, Program Director for New Horizons! Congratulations! I would love to spend some time catching up with you and hear all about what has been going on since we worked together in the "storage closet" oh, so many years ago! :-)
