Our Stories are Still Being Written 

Our Fresh Start program works in partnership with Compassion United’s transition homes to empower residents to grow spiritually, emotionally, socially and practically. We equip them with tools to overcome obstacles, destructive mindsets and unhealthy habits to develop a stable foundation and a sustainable future.

These practical tools are taught in life-skills classes through Fresh Start University, then reinforced by our entire team and the resident’s one-on-one mentoring relationships. We build strong relationships with our residents to help them connect with God, experience community, discover their purpose and make a difference in the world.

The work of Fresh Start is a team effort! We would love to have you be part of the team if you find yourself interested in mentoring those in need.


We are in continual need of prayer, volunteers and donations to fund things like:

Teaching materials
Transportation expenses
Unexpected repairs

Patricia's Story

I moved to Houston after being hired for a new job, but once here, the job fell through. Having no contacts in the area, I had no choice but to live out of my car before relocating to the Salvation Army. I began attending the Conroe House of Prayer and met people from Compassion United, who invited me into Hosanna House. During my 11 months there, I found a job, began saving money, joined the worship team at CHOP, and became house coordinator for Hosanna House. Today, I am happily married and operate my own business. I give all the glory to God because His divine intervention took my difficult season and turned it into joy and blessing.
