Star of Hope Mission
April 20, 2011

I have been a program evaluator for Star of Hope for over a decade. I work with several non-profits in Texas, particularly homeless shelters and transitional housing providers, and Star of Hope is by far the best organization with which I have worked. They work is cutting edge and compassionate in dealing with a very difficult population. Their family programs address the all the needs of the every family member -- physical, emotional, psychological, spiritual and financial -- in helping them to recover from homelessness, poverty, and in most cases physical, sexual and/or substance abuse.

The Great!

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

analyzing client information and seeing the number of residents who exit their program and poverty successfully.

Ways to make it better...

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

expand their resources to allow them to help provide more after-care and housing subsidies to homeless families as they exit the transitional living center and move to permanent housing.
