Victoria TX homeless assistance

About Us


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.

Our Frequently Asked Questions and Potential Resident Checklist pages have more detailed information and we post status updates as well.

In just five short years, Promise Pointe has become an actuality. We have constructed 18 Tiny Homes, created two community laundry, library, and bath buildings, completed several remodeling tasks on existing structures, built a chapel, and welcomed many residents who are regaining their independence and creating lives that would have been impossible without a safe, sound home in which to live. We have almost completed Phase 2 that consists of 12 more homes, the 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 as part of our Guardian Program so that we may continue in our mission to create a better Crossroads by creating a better solution to homelessness in the Crossroads.

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.
