I’ve been acquainted with Star of Hope for at least 30 years. I have never encountered an organization that has a greater compassion for the homeless. There are intentional about rehabilitation, reorientation and exposing people to the love of Christ. They do not use coercion in any form. I have been with the president, Randy Tabor, on a freezing night and taken coffee, sandwiches, jackets, and blankets to the homeless of Houston that refuse to come to a shelter. I have seen firsthand on numerous occasions treat this people with special needs with dignity.

I’ve personally experienced the results of this organization in fundraising. On numerous occasions, I have personally given money and raised money for Star of Hope. I did the ASK at the Star of Hope banquet and we raised a million dollars plus. The talent of the staff is exceptional. I'm proud to be associated with this organization.

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

Commit to praying more consistently for the ministry.

My husband and I have been donors to Star of Hope for many years. We have participated as often as we can at SOH activities, and have been honored to attend the Christmas tree lighting at the Women and Children's Center, the Christmas Eve commencement at the Men's Development Center and the Annual Star of Hope Banquet. Our sons have also attended these events with us, and have been blessed to witness the moving testimonies of the SOH residents. Hearing the residents describe their journey to SOH, what SOH means to them and how SOH has brought about change for them and their families is a testament to the love and healing power of Jesus Christ.

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

hearing the residents describe what SOH has meant to them and seeing the smiles of the children.

I'm not sure; I've not been able to volunteer my services, so I'm not sure what changes might be helpful.
