Helen Gay lived in a neighborhood filled with broken families, hungry children and poverty was abound.
It was her vision from God that started her on a mission to feed the hungry, and house those who needed a place to lay their head.
In 1961 she quit her job as a hair dresser and answered God's calling. She started feeding the children in the neighborhood, then started taking them in to stay and before you know it, she had even adopted 24 of those children.
Churches reached out to help her and in 1971 a board of directors was formed and by 1972 a corporate charter granted by the State of Texas.
What started with one little shot gun house in a run down neighborhood, now has become a 12 building campus, that not only houses over 400 women each year, serves over 4000 meals per month - but also feeds over 500 families in the community twice a year as well.
Sister Gay passed away in 2008, however her legacy lives on. The Mission can now house over 120 women and children and we hope to have another dormatory added in the near future.
