As we roll into summer, or should I say “landed harshly into an early summer”, we have 106 residents and are planning to reach our pre-Covid occupancy level of 120 within the next 2 months.
Summer is a special time at the Mission with our children involved in so many campus activities, including Vacation Bible School, swimming lessons, and art and theatre classes. With the children out of school, there are so many opportunities for volunteers to serve.
Additionally, we are pleased to announce our recent luncheon fundraising event at the Junior League of Houston was a major success. There were two great speakers, and we had an opportunity to meet with our regular supporters and over forty first time donors! New upcoming events include an outdoor event at The Mission, hosted by one of our board officers called “Mission Connections 2022”. This too is a fundraiser, as the summer financial contributions usually drop below what we need for operations. There will be food, music, games and tours, but most of all a chance for all to connect with other businesses and champions of The Mission. Please click on the video above to learn more.
Thanks to your support, we have been making some repairs and upgrades at our facility this second quarter including roof repairs on all buildings, and painting and replacing the siding on the Warner Roberts Building. We are working on a project to improve both of our computer labs, and the funding has been secured.
I am excited to report that the new dormitory project is moving forward. We have received approximately $50,000 in donations and $250,000 in pledges, and there is a matching agreement in place for $500,000. HomeAid Houston, the non-profit arm of The Greater Houston Builders Association, has approved us for one of their 2023 projects which means a builder will be assigned to help with the demolition of the existing house on the property, and the construction of the new dormitory.

We continue to praise God for helping us get through these challenging times, and value and appreciate your support.
