Southeast Houston Homeless Ministry Needs Donations to Help Houston’s Homeless Recover from Catastrophic Flood

HOUSTON, TEXAS (Thursday, August 30, 2017)

Hurricane Harvey devastated the Houston area, causing catastrophic flooding and impacting the lives of thousands of people. For Houston’s homeless population, the storm’s impact was felt even more so. “They who had so little have lost everything, “ says Rosie Flannigan, volunteer with Crossroads at Park Place, a homeless ministry in Southeast Houston. Donations are especially needed now, so that Crossroads can provide homeless men and women with the basics that were lost during the flood.

Financial donations can be made on their website at https://crossroadsatparkplaceorg.presencehost.net/how-to-help/donate.html.  In additional to financial support, Crossroads is seeking donations of clean men’s and women’s clothing, new socks and new underwear,  walking and tennis shoes, and bedding.  Clothing donations can be dropped off at Crossroads on Monday-Thursday, 7 am - 12 pm at their facility located at 3827 Broadway Street, Houston TX 77017.  

Persons interested in making donations or volunteering may contact Jarvis Taylor, Executive Director, at  713-252-3604.
