House of Charity is a very loving and caring charity. They play a very big part in giving charity all over the world, and also locally. I am very proud to be able to work with such a great foundation.

I recently volunteered with this agency and had a wonderful experience. Its great to see an organization that is not only helping the local neighborhoods but also helping our global community. It was amazing to see the smiles on all the childrens faces, who dispite the adversity they are facing are so hopeful for the future, this is thanks to the kind hearts at The House of Charity.

I had the opportunity to work on a voluntary basis with this organization and I'm really impressed with all the help that they are providing to the Houston community. Regardless, race, culture or language, The House of Charity is doing Is doing a remarkable job. I definitely recommend the community in Houston, is more involved, both for help on a voluntary basis as in economic donations for which this Agency can continue completing their goals for the benefit of needy families
The House of Charity Is doing a remarkable job. I definitely recommend the community in Houston, to get more involved, to help on a voluntary basis as in economic donations as well for which this Agency can continue completing their goals for the benefit of needy families.
In particular, the work they are performing day to day in the Program of Healing Home is extraordinary with children who receive treatment through a partnership with Shiners Hospital. A hard work, but thanks to God the House of Charity decided to take over.

It is a great Charity work. House of Charities is sharing its love and donations to the most needed families in our community. School kits and Personal Hygiene are good assistance to our community. We, the community members will look forward to be a partner of House of Charities.

I assisted this charity last year and due to my finding I will not recommend it for any assistance of volunteering or donating funds. I helped with the children that were here from Pakistan. I saw and found things that would be considered as unethical for a non-profit organization especially one that is supposed to be helping children. I am from Pakistan and so is the Executive Director, Hashmat Effendi, and it saddens me to see this non-profit organization getting away with the tactics she uses. I checked BBB and her income is $731,709 and her expenses are $731,709 but on this site has her income $810,893 and expenses are $804,613. Well, which one is correct??????

This Charity needs to STOPPED because of the business tactics. The Founder, Hashmat Effendi, treats her volunteers and staff as SLAVES. Hashmat uses people to her advantage and HELPING Children is a JOKE. Her son works for her and he gets paid well and drives a BRAND new Infiniti sports car that Hashmat and her husband bought for him. AS far as helping children......she only helps Pakistani children. Take a look at her web-site www.houseofcharity.com. Also, her web-site is a .com not a .org!!!! She is very dishonest person and does not HELP local Houston Children. The IRS needs to audit her since she supports her family, her lavish home and cars. Sjhe always has her hand out to ask but never gives in return. Again, helping children is an absolute JOKE and she needs to help local children in Houston and stop bring children here because her country hurt young girls sch as throwing acid on them intentionally. I hope someone reads this and puts a stop to her and if she wants to support Pakistan children then move there and HELP your country. Well, I am sure she like the US since there is more money her for her to STEAL.

I met House of Charity people on the luncheon organized by Houston women magazine. I also went to the Healing Home and met the children whoa re disfigured because of the burn.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I see how they take care of these little burn victims. The children have told me that even there parents don't take care of them. The article in Houston Women magazine is very well deserving.

The previous reviewer perhaps had some score to settle as he/she writes that: "I've seen the results of this organization with my own eyes and they do help children". Further he/she writes: "What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is the children that I was able to help with the funds that I raised". Again he/she writes: "The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were Wonderful and dedicated". Then he/she goes on to trash the founder. I have personally known the founder and seen her amazing work which has recently been compared to the work of Mother Teresa by Wall Street Journal and USA Today. The founder drives an 11 year old clunker that I sold to her several years ago for 6K and lives in a rented house. It is unfortunate that reviewers like the previous one can go around trashing good people doing God's work on this earth for their nefarious agendas. Its shameful and a disgrace.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Hundreds of healed children that I have personally seen and helped in countries in Asia, Africa and the Americas.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Raise more funds to do more of the same work. I have not found a more dedicated angel to work with than the founder of the House of Charity.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Selfless dedication to helping the poorest of the poor no matter where they may be.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Caring, selfless, dedicated to helping people in need.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Do wonders. They could treat 50,000 to 70,000 indigent patients in the poorest corners of the globe.

Ways to make it better...

We had more time and equipment. There is no shortage of need.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Not enough resources.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Resources provided to House of Charity are leveraged exponentially. I would strongly recommend House of Charity for your charitable giving.
