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 will be a place that enables our homeless brothers and sisters to heal. It will be a place where they can rediscover hope, renew their purpose and restore their dignity. Most importantly, it will be a place they can call home.

Meet Our Executive Director
Sister Rebecca Janacek is a Sister of the Incarnate Word Sisters of Victoria, Texas. She has recently returned from ministering as a missionary nurse among a marginalized society in Kenya, East Africa. Her experience of assisting people of the nomadic Pokot tribe in development that empowers their lives has put them on a journey to claim their place in the larger Kenyan society. Now upon her return to the U.S. she is ministering to the homeless of the Victoria Crossroads area at Promise Pointe. Located in Raisin just outside of Victoria, Promise Pointe is a faith-based, non-denominational organization offering transformational development interventions for the homeless. Building a nurturing neighborhood made up of those seeking to leave their life of homelessness multiple opportunities to bring them beyond their current state to a sustainable newly homed state are offered. As the Community Director of this endeavor, Sister Rebecca lives at Promise Pointe offering guidance, encouragement and a compassionate presence to the residents.
Homelessness in the Crossroads is an immediate community problem that nothing currently will satisfy or support.
Ending Homelessness Through Community
Promise Pointe will provide individual housing first, one person at a time, and then grow into a self-contained community
Promise Pointe will provide Tiny Home cottages, and residents will pay rent based on a percentage of their income.
Promise Pointe has recently purchased a property located at 8550 Hwy 59 and has begun renovations to prepare for our first residents. We have hired an Executive Director and are now looking for partnerships within our community to work with us as we move forward.
