Westside Homeless Partnership
Po Box 55607
The mission of Westside Homeless Partnership is to prevent and end homelessness for families by providing them with resources and supporting services that lead to self-sufficiency.
With financial support to help ease the worries of meeting basic living expenses, coupled with intensive supportive services, families can focus on the education and counseling they need to become productive, stable and self-supporting.
Westside Homeless Partnership (WHP) was incorporated in 1994 as a private nonprofit organization. Guided by the belief in the inherent worth and dignity of families with children struggling with homelessness or facing home eviction, a group of individuals designed a program to address some of the interrelated causes of homelessness that families were facing and that no other organization in West Houston was addressing.
WHP works with community organizations and the local school district, to give families the support and training they need to succeed. A major objective of the Partnership is to stabilize the home environment for the children affected by the threat of homelessness and to help lower student mobility rates within our service area.
