The Life Center

For The Homeless


We are growing and expanding. Life Center has been blessed with a new Expansion Campus and it will provide shelter for men, women, children and homeless families. Heaven's Kitchen will also be at the same location. We are believing God that you would make a financial donation TODAY. Our new Campus is 80% completed. Items needed for Heaven's Kitchen are: commercial grade appliances, such as a range hood, grease trap, stove, freezer and refrigerator.

Your help is needed now. We also ask that you share The Life Center Vision with others. Life Center is a 501c3 non-profit Christian Organization. For a tour of our Campus, please call Jeremy Boucher at 713-750-9565. For online giving, click here.

If you are homeless and in need of our assistance, call The Life Center homeless hotline @ 832-292-3295.

Faith-based Christian Organization/24-Hour Shelter


The Life Center is dedicated to serve, educate and represent the Homeless of Houston. Through the operation of a short-stay residential facility, and the combination of an educational program, an in-house work program and group counseling sessions, The Life Center hopes to impart sufficient work and basic living skills, along with a positive and focused mental attitude to Homeless individuals so they can take their proper place as productive and stable members of today’s society.

There are approximately 20,000 Homeless people in the City of Houston and there is no indication that the number is diminishing. With depressing forces at work in our nation’s urban areas, the records of violent death continue to be broken. Hence, our name “The Life Center.” To be Homeless to be without shelter is a frightening situation that often appears insurmountable. It’s an endless cycle driving them deeper into despair. The cycle can be broken.  We began The Life Center to break that cycle. With your help we can make a difference. We provide Homeless people with a place to come home to, food to sustain them, clothing to keep them warm, job counseling, a mailing address, Spiritual Guidance, a Computer Literacy Program and even a Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Program to help them overcome destructive addictions as they learn to cope with life.

 One of our primary goals is to provide temporary shelter for up to 70 of Houston’s Homeless and most destitute, and after the completion of our new "Life Center's Hope Village", the plan is to have enough sleep space for 200. While at The Life Center, they will receive the services listed and also be referred to other agencies, ones that can assist them with getting proper identification, also agencies that help with employment, in an effort to give them opportunity to escape the cycle of life on the streets. But we can’t achieve this alone. We need your support. The Life Center has not received any Government grants as of yet.

The Life Center Vision began in 1989 and is a 501c3 non-profit, faith based Christian Organization. Located on Old Yale St., close to the Independence Heights area of Houston and the historical Acres Homes, we are ideally positioned to make a difference. Our present facilities include three living areas and a separate Multi – purpose Facility that can be used for educational classes, meetings and motivational sessions, and Chapel with the ability to support our community and make a visible difference. We have six buildings on our new Campus. We have a total of 10 facilities and room to grow. The Life Center operates as a 24–hour refuge for those who are in need. There is also a 90-day Rehabilitation Program. There is an on-site Director and an outreach team. We have a non-discrimination policy.
