This holiday season, give a life-changing gift for the most at-risk individuals in our community.
Give a gift for Don. A 47-year-old homeless man, Don had been living on the streets for five years. Through the assistance of CHRISTUS Our Daily Bread, Don was able to secure housing through the Galveston Housing Authority. Don had been on the waitlist for many years, but due to lack of necessary paperwork, his housing application was put on hold. Within two weeks, the Our Daily Bread team secured his paperwork and his housing application was approved. Because of CHRISTUS Our Daily Bread, the daily and long-term needs of Galveston's homeless are met with respect and hope.
Give a gift for Maria*. With the onset of the pandemic, Maria, who for many years controlled her eating disorder, experienced a relapse. In one month, she had lost six pounds. She scheduled an appointment at CHRISTUS St. Mary’s Clinic, where she was started on medication and referred for counseling and nutrition. With medication adjustment, psychological and nutrition counseling she is on the way to recovery. During a recent session with her counselor, Maria was happy to report that she had gained a pound! Through CHRISTUS St. Mary’s Clinic, medical, nutritional and mental care are providing a healthy path for Houston’s underserved and uninsured communities.

Give a gift for Vincent. Vincent is 100 years old, and one of the many Veterans we provide care to at the DeGeorge at Union Station, a living facility for homeless Veterans in downtown Houston. Since 2020, CHRISTUS Healthy Living Mobile Clinics has administered immunizations and more to this special group of underserved Veterans. According to the facility manager, having CHRISTUS come directly to the building, not only provides the residents with better and more accessible medical care, but also gives them a sense of comfort knowing they aren’t forgotten.
