We are now accepting requests for shelter and services to those individuals who are already housed at another shelter but have exhausted their stay.  We will be making appointments for them to test before they enter our program.  The TCCHD will provide an agency document that states they have been tested with the results within 48-72 hours. We will house adult individuals or families (mother and children) on a first-come, first-served basis.  To-date, we cannot provide services to individuals who have no current housing but we are working on funding to provide either hotel accommodations or prepare one of our existing apartments for quarantine purposes while testing is completed.

If the client is currently residing in another shelter:

-The agency should contact us at (409) 948-2288 to request services

-The client remains with that agency until test results are obtained

-If negative for COVID-19, the individual can be assessed and placed in one of our regular shelter programs (emergency only or long-term) for further services.

Sarah's House

Sarah’s House was established in 2001 as a non-profit organization dedicated to providing emergency care, shelter, food, clothing and other basic necessities to women and their children. These individuals have found themselves in the frightening position of having no safe place to sleep or eat and few options for immediate assistance available. Since its founding, Sarah’s House has provided real time help to many homeless, unemployed, or underemployed single women or women with children. There is no situation more frightening, dangerous and seemingly hopeless for a woman than to be alone on the streets of a large metropolitan area with no place to go. The challenges facing a mother with children to care for is even direr.

At Sarah's House, our mission is to provide emergency shelter, meals, clothing and basic necessities for homeless women and their children. Our goal is to assist in providing these families with stability, education and life-skills to regain permanent housing after experiencing a homeless crisis. In order to do this, we support our clients efforts to find employment opportunities and achieve self-sufficiency. In a single year, our current program will house 100 new residents and service over 300 additional clients per month. We believe, together, with the support of our valued donors and volunteers, Sarah's House improves the future and well-being of the Pasadena community.  Sarah's House is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization.​

Sarah's House is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment to all staff and residents. We know that many people are being impacted by the virus as well as the economic uncertainty currently plaguing our community. Sarah's House aims to be part of the solution in ending Homelessness and Economic Instability in our community. Join us in our efforts to end Homelessness in the Pasadena and Harris County.
