WHO We Are
In 2014, a group of pastors and community leaders came together to address the need of family services in the Fulshear-Simonton areas. As a result, a new organization was formed called Family Hope to be a place of COMPASSION and TRANSFORMATION for the community of Fulshear and Simonton in Fort Bend County.
Transforming hurting people into healthy families through the hope of God.
OUR VALUES (WHY we serve)
HOPE not hopeless. (Through the power of Christ, we have hope.)
UNIFIED not separate. (We are connected to each other.)
WHOLE not broken. (God desires the broken and hurting to be made whole.)
OUR STRATEGY (HOW we serve)
ASSIST - offering help with food in moments of crisis. (Food Fair)
EQUIP - offering resources to identify, leverage and develop community assets to help people improve their lives. (parent classes, ESL, counseling, educational events)
SERVE - offering a place to serve our neighbors and connect with resources and organizations to impact the communities.
Examples of those who BENEFIT from Family Hope:
