Lone Star Trust was established in January of 2020 in order to provide a way for persons returning to the community from incarceration to have affordable housing in a Christian environment, away from the pitfalls that can accompany those recently released. The objective is to provide housing in a homelike atmosphere, where these individuals can readjust to the community, find peace and begin to thrive once more as productive members of society.
The goal of providing affordable housing to those who have been recently released from incarceration can be meet within the community by purchasing homes (not halfway houses) in regular neighborhoods where there is a sense of community involvement and pride.
Those who are willing can thrive in a Christian environment where there are peers and believers to help nurture those who are struggling with their faith. Clients can find help and encouragement in their daily walk, the peace, not only physical but mental, spiritual peace that is desired by all.
Lone Star is committed to establishing a network of agencies and employers who will actively engage in helping those recently incarcerated. It’s not a handout but a hand up. By helping those clients that are in need of job placement, food assistance, clothing assistance or even help with State and\or Federal benefits, these individuals will begin their journey back into being productive members of society.
With these goals in place and with community support from those such as yourselves, Lone Star Trust will strive to reintegrate clients, welcoming them home to a place that is safe, warm and welcome.
At this time, we have been able to purchase our first property but we still need donations to keep it going. We have a gofundme page set up at charity.gofundme.com/lonestartrust and are accepting donations at this time. We are also accepting applications in anticipation of being able to purchase additional properties. The need is there and we would like to help as many persons as we can. If you could, please help me get the word out to others, the more people know about us the more we can do.
