Mission Statement

SEARCH Homeless Services was founded in 1989 by a group of concerned citizens and volunteers who responded to the growing number of men, women and children living on the streets of Houston. The original program offered meals, showers, laundry services and mail pick-up. Today, SEARCH is one of the leading institutions in greater Houston helping people move from the streets, into jobs, and safe, stable housing. In Fiscal Year 2013, SEARCH served 8,039 men, women and children in our community. Many of our clients require long-term support and a combination of housing, case management, mental and physical health care, all of which they can access through SEARCH and its partner agencies. Taking a client-centered approach, SEARCH professionals "meet people where they are." Case managers are taught and implement evidence-based practices depending on the individual program and client needs. Non-confrontational counseling approaches demonstrate respect for the individual and attempt to increase awareness of behavior by helping clients think differently about their actions and consider what can be gained through change. SEARCH pursues a mission of providing hope, creating opportunity, and transforming lives.

About Us

Since 1989, SEARCH has become one of the leading institutions in greater Houston helping people move from the streets into jobs and safe, stable housing. Many of our clients require long-term support and a combination of housing, case management, mental and physical health care, all of which they can access through SEARCH and its partner agencies. Taking a client-centered approach, SEARCH professionals “meet people where they are”; we encourage clients to take steps toward success without rigid rules or judgment. Motivational Interviewing, a non-confrontational, evidence-based counseling approach, demonstrates respect for the individual and attempts to increase awareness of behavior by helping clients think differently about their actions and considering what can be gained through change. With our support, people experiencing homelessness can regain hope, seize opportunities and transform their lives back to stability and self-sufficiency. We pursue a mission of providing hope, creating opportunity and transforming lives.
