Where to recovering clients go?


Years ago I asked the big question, “Where do clients go?” and the answer I got from one of the experts was not very encouraging to me. It’s eight years later. We have a jail ministry, and over the last couple of years, it’s given us data to believe that not that many clients end up there long term. We have a memorial service ministry. I believe we have a pretty good idea how many clients die. Not that many clients end up being older homeless people, either. So where to they go? 

We believe that most recovering street youth get jobs in small business and then raise families. Landscaping, auto mechanics, advertising, animal care, health care. There are just some of the places clients end up finding a place to work.

Message like this one just never get old:

You may not remember me, but people in Austin use to call me [xxx]. I am married to [xxx], and we use to be one of the older kids that hung out on the drag and asked for money. Well, we gave our lives to Christ, and now we live in Houston. We are married with a son and a daughter on the way. I currently have my own web site development company. We are helping the homeless in Houston get employed. I want to say, “Thank you for being there and may god truly bless you.”

Help us to help the current youth on the streets.
