Details

Project LIFT Houston is a non-profit organization with a faith component that was established to serve the immediate and long-term needs of homeless men, at-risk youth, women and children, alcohol and drug dependent, victims of domestic violence and the ex-incarcerated in Houston, Texas. The program?s primary focus is to identify, utilize, and partner with other agencies on the local and national levels to eliminate homelessness and reduce recidivism rate in the state and empower these individuals to a life of independence.

With over 30 years in the ministry and a lifetime dedicated to helping disenfranchised men and women and youth in Los Angeles, California, Reverend Jimmie Irving relocated to Houston, Texas fulfilling the mandate from God to help those hurting in his home state. Rev. Irving founded Project LIFT Houston in 2005 following a nationally recognized and highly successful model in California. Executive offices were established at 2425 West Loop South in 2007 and official formation in 2008. The organization is presently securing an interim facility in Houston until land is acquired and funding in place for completion of a final campus which will provide over 200,000 sq. ft. and 10 acres of pastoral surroundings.
