Sign up for this Golf Tournament on Friday April 12 benefitting the 1960 Hope Center for Homelessness. See more details in the pamphlet images below. (Note that this is not an unexcused absence from work)

The 1960 Hope Center is a 501(c)(3) organization ministering to adults experiencing homelessness. This resource center for the unemployed and homeless is dedicated to providing basic necessities and a pathway back to a productive lifestyle. 1960 Hope Center has served more than 1,200 individuals in the first two years of being open. Currently, almost 50 people per day are provided services such as showers, laundry, haircuts, clothing, breakfast, lunch, incentive life skills classes, AA, Bible study, counseling, ID and housing support, and more. With the help of caseworkers, RN’s, social workers, clergy, and a devoted team of volunteers, people are finding jobs, housing, mental health and rehabilitation help, and a restoration of hope. 1960 Hope Center is working to be a solution for the homeless issue in northwest Houston. For more information about 1960 Hope Center, see below and the website at
