Family Assistance

We provide food, rent, utilities, medication and financial assistance and support services aimed at returning individuals and families to self-sufficiency. As we help relieve the overwhelming stress that comes from the lack of basic needs, those in crisis are better able to work towards self-sufficiency.

On Galveston Island, services are available at the Beacon of Hope Center. For more information, call 409-762-2064 or e-mail Linda Mannen at

For information on the services provided on the mainland at the Texas City Basic Needs Office, call 409-948-0405 or e-mail Melissa Barilla (Case Manager) at
