Welcome to our first release of

ON THE JOURNEY WITH J’S HOUSE,

a quarterly newsletter to keep you informed and included.

LET’S OPEN THIS HOME

We remain committed to our goal of securing a home by the end of 2023 and opening the home to boys in 2024. We are excited about two promising home options. While we’ve been asked to keep the details confidential at this time, the first option could bring an announcement this year. And the second would be ready to announce early next year. 


We have been blessed with donations and commitments totaling +$100,000 this year! Thank you, J’s House Family! Let’s keep this momentum going. To make this dream a reality for the boys in foster care, we need to raise an additional $500,000 to prepare the home for our boys and cover initial operating expenses. Our fundraising committee has some amazing ideas for the fall fundraising campaign. More details coming soon!


While our funding comes together, we’ve kicked off our licensing process by forming a committee focused on writing the policies, procedures, and treatment strategies that will put our boys on a path to healing.

WE LOVE THIS COMMUNITY

It’s truly been a joy to meet with incredible organizations that share our passion for providing hope and healing to children in foster care. A sincere THANK YOU to The Riverside Project, Angel Reach, Methodist Children’s Home, Kinship Konnection, Entrusted Houston, Promise Rose, Foster Care Advocacy Center, and The Joshua Project.

We’re also so thankful to have the opportunity to meet with Partnership Lake Houston, StoryBoard HTX, Finishing Touch Ministries, Rotary Club of Lake Houston Area, Designed By Kelly, YMCA, and several local orphan care ministries. 




We’re excited to have joined the Texas Alliance for Children and Family Services (TACFS)! We are looking forward to the Annual Child Care Administrators Conference this fall to help tackle the challenges our boys face. 

JOIN OUR GROWING FAMILY

We’ve added three incredible people to our board. Welcome April, Steve and Chandler! You can learn more about each one on our website.


If you’ve been wondering how you can help, we have several opportunities. Whether it’s maintaining our website or volunteering at an event, you can make a difference. We’re also currently looking for passionate individuals who have expertise in law, local business, government, or lived foster care experience to join our board.
