In This episode of the Meet Houston Missions Podcast, Paul talks with Tina Hatcher, founder of Hope Impacts—a Katy Texas area mission aimed at helping people who have found themselves homeless with no support to get back on their feet. Hope Impacts does not provide shelter, but rather they provide for people’s basic needs from meals to showers to computer services to make the journey to getting back on their feet an easier path.
Hope Impacts also provides information regarding other missions that provide housing, rehab services, and other services that assist the homeless. Additionally, they have a van that picks up people from three locations around the Katy area and brings them to Hope Impacts for a hot meal or shower.
Tina Hatcher was moved to establish Hope Impacts after she found herself homeless and struggled to find resources and assistance to get back off the street.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, they offer Suppers and Showers, which require about 10 volunteers for food preparation and service.

They welcome church and civic groups to reach out to coordinate group volunteer days/events.
