Above all, you will see how your support for Star of Hope opens people’s eyes to the presence and love of God. Knowing Jesus Christ is the best Christmas gift of all.

Please take a look through this catalog and become an important part of the lives of more than 1,000 guests being blessed at Star of Hope each year.

Merry Christmas!

Gifts for the Soul

Give the gift of Fresh Clothing

For many, a fresh set of clothes is the first step to overcoming homelessness. It helps lift spirits and boost confidence.

We are thankful for all the shoes and clothes donated to Star of Hope. They are put to good use. But some clothing needs are not met by in-kind donations.

We urgently need gifts to purchase shoes and clothing for the growing needs of the children and adults we serve daily.

Your gift provides books, classes, educational materials and resources to help men and women gain the confidence they need to succeed in work and life.

Share a Little Joy this Christmas


For children who do not know where they will sleep or eat, a toy for Christmas seems out of reach. Adults who long for their families expect nothing but loneliness during the holidays. But you can share a little joy and Christmas cheer with those who need it the most by providing a beautifully wrapped Christmas present. As our guests, they will know someone cares and be open to learning about the greatest gift of all . . . Jesus Christ!

Provide Christmas gifts for 1 child $25.00
Provide Christmas gifts for 2 children $50.00
Provide Christmas gifts for a family $100.00



Every gift to Star of Hope represents a gift to our ministry of serving Houston’s poor and homeless. Gifts designated for a particular service are used as requested until that need is fully met. Any remaining money is put to use where it is needed most. All gifts are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
