Texas Reach Out is a non-profit ministry that provides housing and spiritual development for Christian men and women reintegrating into society after exiting the criminal justice system.
We are committed to walking alongside our brothers and sisters in Christ as they work to rebuild their lives with Christ.
We dream of, and are working towards, a community that fosters spiritual growth and freedom in Christ for those once imprisoned by sin.
Our mission is to provide alternative housing, A Christ-focused life, discipleship, and spiritual guidance to men and women released from prison returning to the community
Texas Reach Out focuses on these standards:
A strong faith is the foundation of our ministry. It is because of our faith in Jesus Christ that we serve Him through Texas Reach Out.
"Very truly I tell you, all who have faith in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father." John 14:12
We pray that as this ministry grows, God's vision remains clear to our Board of Directors, to our workers, to our volunteers and mentors, and to our participants. Fluidity of God's vision throughout the ministry is key.
"So then, King Agrippa, I was not disobedient to the vision from heaven." Acts 26:19
We believe in operating our ministry in a way that is above reproach. This demands transparency, accountability, and honesty.
"Pray for us. We are sure that we have a clear conscience and desire to live honorably in every way." Hebrews 13:18
We believe we would not be faithfully serving if we were not being considerate and serving our community.
"So in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others." Romans 12:5
Texas Reach Out is a faith-based 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization specializing in alternative housing for those released from prison and those who are homeless as a result of unsuccessful reintegration into society after an extended prison stay. We serve those who have made a serious commitment to change their life course and make a decision for Christ. Residents apply or housing through a written application process, and many are referred by prison chaplains, pastors, and lay ministers.
