Houston, TX Homeless Information Forum

Welcome to our Houston, TX information forum. I have added some questions for you and posted them below.

The goal is to compile as much local information as possible for those who are homeless and need food or homeless resource assistance in Houston.

If you are familiar with Houston and the homeless situation, please answer the questions below as fully as possible. Let's build a useful resource section that only you and those intimately familiar with Houston will know.

2019-07-15 23:53:39That would not be right. Your dog doesn't deserve that its not his fault. So I will never have a dog when Im homeless even tho dogs help me so much. They are innocent. Its hard to live that way. They deserve better.
