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.

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!
