Angela House

To successfully transition women back into society after incarceration.

 

It's #GivingTuesday!

 

Dear Friends,

     We reach out with love and compassion during these particularly challenging times in Houston. With so many Houstonians recovering from the recent floods, Angela House feels truly fortunate that our facility was spared and our residents are safe. Our hearts are with those who lost so much. And we are grateful that Angela House can continue to be a safe haven for the women we serve. We look forward to the opportunity to continue this vital outreach and we reach out today to ask for your continued support.
      Over the past year, Angela House has continued to flourish and witness many successes and transformations, which your generous donations have helped to provide. In the past year we have served 38 residents and engaged over 300 volunteers. Thanks to the generosity of partners like yourself, we were able to purchase new beds for the residents, a new van (with a working air conditioner!), increase programming opportunities, as well as address ongoing maintenance issues in our ageing facility. Additionally, we have intensified our continuum of care by initiating a formal After Care support group to ensure that our past residents have the support and mentoring they need to continue on their path of recovery. We are thankful to be part of so many joyous moments and request your ongoing commitment and support to the mission of Angela House.
     Your support of our mission allows Angela House to change lives in very meaningful ways. We hope you will consider a gift this year so that we can continue to transform lives and watch our alumnae group flourish. Thank you for your thoughtfulness and consideration to all the women of Angela House. Your past and continued contributions provide the foundation for a community of respect, dignity, and empowerment that Angela House strives to create every day with the women we serve.

Sincerely,

Sister Sig

Maureen O’Connell, O.P.

The women of Angela House were invited to meet Drake as VIP guests at the Back-to-School Barbeque during Houston Appreciation Week (HAW). This encounter was completely unexpected and the women were beyond surprised and delighted to have been selected for the opportunity. Drake was incredibly gracious with his time and the kind words of encouragement he gave to the women. Further, Drake took the time to listen to the women tell their stories of transformation and take individual photos. Angela House continues to be a place of recovery and hope and Drake provided a personal touch to ensure our residents know their worth. Thank you Drake for taking the time to get to know the women of Angela House and our work in the community!
