Changing Lives ... Connecting Communities

Dear Friends and Donors we want to share with you an amazing success story. We thank you for your donations and support. Your donations are invaluable to the success of our clients and our program.

James, a chronically homeless Army veteran, was referred to Texas Center Point’s HVRP by the VA Homeless Veterans Program.  James was residing in local temporary housing which required residents to obtain employment.  Texas Center Point provided James with job preparation assistance and referred him to a short term paid employment opportunity through a Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services program.  When his temporary housing fees were increased James had to move to a shelter.  Texas Center Point successfully advocated for James to be placed in a VA supported transitional housing program while assisting him with long term job placement.  He met regularly with Center Point staff and never faltered in pursuing referrals for employment.  After two months, staff connected James with Enterprise Rent- A- Car, a Texas Center Point preferred employer, which had a job opening - and he landed it!  James happily continues to work for Enterprise and with the assistance of Texas Center Point is in the process of receiving his HUD-VASH permanent housing voucher. His future looks much brighter.

In the words of James, “Texas Center Point is very helpful.  They have shown me how to work with my personal e-mail; provide me bus pass; assisted me in finding employment and obtaining job at the Enterprise Rent-A –Car as a car server.  They have helped me through some difficult and depressing times. If it wasn’t for y’all, I don’t know what I would be doing; probably I’d be on the streets- homeless again.”
