Promise Pointe is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization whose purpose is to provide permanent affordable housing and a supportive community for the chronically homeless in Victoria, Texas and the Crossroads region.
Our goal is to build a transformative residential community to serve our neighbors who have been living on the streets, while also empowering the surrounding community into a lifestyle of service with the homeless.
Modeled on the Community First! Village in Austin, TX, Promise Pointe is a place that enables our homeless brothers and sisters to heal. It is a place where they can rediscover hope, renew their purpose and restore their dignity. Most importantly, it is a place they can call home.
A Bird’s Eye View of Promise Pointe
In just two short years, Promise Pointe has become an actuality. We have constructed 10 Tiny Homes, created a community laundry, library, and bath building, completed several remodeling tasks on existing structures, welcomed many residents who are regaining their independence and creating lives that would have been impossible with out a safe, sound home in which to live. As we near being filled to capacity, we are ready to begin Phase 2 that will include 12 more homes, a second community building, a chapel, dog park, and facilities for microenterprises that will allow community members to create income with their particular talents.
Please consider making a one time donation or better yet, a monthly, or annual donation so that we may continue in our mission to create a better Crossroads by creating a better solution to homelessness in the Crossroads.
