SEARCH Homeless Services
HomeAid Houston, the Greater Houston Builders Association's Remodelers Council, and Mike Wilburn Homes teamed up to renovate SEARCH's House of Tiny Treasures. The project included raising the foundation, leveling the floors, installing insulation, painting and wallpapering the walls, building a new ramp and porch, relocating the landscaping, and many more updates.
Today, SEARCH Homeless Services provides hope, opportunity, and transformation to homeless men, women, and children. SEARCH grew out of an ecumenical group of churches and synagogues who believed that individuals facing homelessness not only need a bed and a meal, they need a future. Its supporting services include mobile outreach - finding people living on the streets and connecting to needed help, employment assistance, and safe, affordable housing. SEARCH's services are designed to help individuals create and sustain stable, productive futures.
SEARCH Homeless Services also offers an early childhood development program through SEARCH’s House of Tiny Treasures, which was Houston’s first nationally accredited early childhood development center dedicated to serving homeless children and families. SEARCH’s House of Tiny Treasures' mission is to provide comprehensive early care, education, and therapeutic services to assist homeless children and families build stable, functional lives. To be eligible for the program, families with pre-school age children must be homeless and the parents must be actively working on improving their education, job skills, or employment.
