Your generosity is AMAZING! We raised more than $22,300 for Thomas’ home. including the matching grant from St. Mark the Evangelist Anglican Church. What an awesome start from our community. We’re still calculating final amount needed after so many also offered supplies and labor.
Additional donations are still needed for the balance of the final cost. If you have any questions about this build, leave a message at 469.428.7320 and we’ll have our President return your call.


After a life of homelessness and multiple back surgeries, our beloved Thomas would like a permanent home. He has been gifted land in Waxahachie and we are working with him to raise funds and build a small home.

Do we need a shelter?

“I’m afraid if we build it, they will come….”

So many people believe that if we have a shelter in Ellis County that the homeless will start coming into our towns. When actually the reason we want to build it is because we have so many here right now and no place to help them. There will always be some who want to stay where they are today but there are so many more that want a warm, or cool, place to sleep before they go to work or school the next day. They wonder where their next meal will come from and how they will take a shower, especially the children who don’t want to be ridiculed for how they smell or look.

There are so many more homeless in our county since Covid-19 hit because they were evicted from their homes before and now, after the moratorium. Most families are just one paycheck away from losing everything and many of them lost their jobs during the pandemic and unemployment or their new jobs are not enough to catch up and make ends meet.

We have so many good organizations in the county to help people but not one shelter. It’s time to show we care for our fellow man and provide for their basic needs of shelter and food. We’ll also help them find new jobs or education if needed. Join us in making this happen.
