Courtland Management Group
In mid-October over 100 volunteers from Cortland Management Group worked at the Center. They were very efficient, effective and professional work groups. Their crews accomplished great things: some carried heavy doors and other non-usable items down the fire escape, and others removed old carpet and items from behind the building. Teams cut vegetation off the fence to be painted; a 40 cubic yard trash dumpster was filled! They moved furniture and painted the back of the building area including the large metal shipping container. Last, a large crew cleaned and painted the fence and fire escape, repaired stucco, painted window trim, rails and more before cleaning up. We are very grateful for all of their accomplishments!
Our Medical Clinic is Open
After many months of planning and in partnership with Spring Branch Community Health Center, we are pleased to announce Hope Center Houston has launched its very own medical clinic.

On Monday, October 25, Michael Smith, Chief Program Officer for SBCHC, along with his staff saw the first patients from our homeless community. We had an impressive first day; what a momentous accomplishment for HCH and our homeless friends.

SBCHC has decided to bring their team EVERY Monday to provide medical services for our guests. In addition, the SBCHC team housing specialist is working with our Social Services Coordinator, John Basel, and will continue to partner with him weekly. This DOUBLES our ability to potentially secure affordable housing for our guests.

Thanks to each of you for your support and prayers to see this project to fruition. Exciting days are ahead for Hope Center Houston. Please join our staff and volunteers as we celebrate this special day. Thanks be to God!
