About our cause choice:
SEARCH Homeless Services...works to engage, stabilize, educate, employ and house individuals and families who are homeless. Their essential services are highly effective in transforming lives because they meet individuals where they are and provide what they need to get off the streets and back on their feet.

You do not need to travel far in Houston before seeing a person who is homeless. Few of us can imagine, let alone understand, the circumstances that led to a human being begging for survival on the streets of our great city.
