Communities are the backbone of America. Help us build and strengthen our local community by working to end homelessness right here in North Houston.
How You Can Help
There are a variety of ways you can be of service and help local families in need. Volunteer, support our Events, Host Families, participate in our National Charity League programs, corporate matching or support these:
Be a House Angel
At Family Promise of Lake Houston, we have 3 families using the day center for all of their laundry, meal preparation, and personal care. As you can imagine, the supplies run out QUICKLY! House Angels provide supplies on an ongoing basis to stock our day center with the essentials.
We are always in need of:
- Laundry Detergent
- Toilet Paper
- Full-size Shampoo, Conditioner, and Body Soap
- Dish Soap / Dishwasher Detergent
- Swiffer WetJet pads and solution
- All-Purpose Spray Cleaner
Many companies will match your giving to Family Promise. View a list of participating companies. If you work for one of these companies, contact their Human Resource department for details on how to participate.
Provide a set of Valentine's to help our families prepare for their classroom parties!
Mother's / Father's Day
Provide cookies and cards for the kids to give to their moms and dads!
Flowers & Yard Help
Come plant flowers in our containers, mulch away and help us spruce up for each Summer Season!
Costumes of all sizes are collected at this time of year to help the kiddos participate in classroom parties and Halloween/Fall festivities!
We collect and distribute the ingredients for Thanksgiving meals to our Out-of-Network families. Consider making meal baskets of the staples with a gift card to allow families to purchase the protein of their choice from the local grocery store!
This is a busy time of giving for all of us at the Family Promise of Lake Houston! We are stocking stuffers, making holiday meal preparations, facilitating Christmas giving "adoptions", and collecting gift cards to take to our In-Network families shopping for their loved ones. Helping to bless a struggling family with a memorable Christmas is a wonderful way to promote the spirit of the season within your own family or giving group!
Give to the Promise House!
We are very excited to be moving along with the plans to build The Promise House, which is expected to be completed in late 2019. With a larger and more equipped facility, we will be able to provide many more services to our families and the community! Join us in the campaign to raise the rest of the funds needed to complete this wonderful project and take part in the work of enhancing lives for years to come!
Gifts of Time and Talent!
Some of the most valuable gifts we receive are the kind that don’t cost a thing! Our families learn and grow most through the work of the 2800 volunteers that support them through FPLH. Meals, advocacy, mentorship/ tutoring, and providing positive and uplifting friendships are just some of the ways that you can give to our families!
