With more than 40 housing communities across the state, Volunteers of America Texas is one of the largest providers of affordable housing for low-income households in the state. We specialize in permanent, supportive housing options for at-risk groups – seniors, families facing poverty, individuals with mental and physical disabilities and individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities – who otherwise might have to turn to unsafe, blighted housing, or worse, the streets
We believe housing is a basic human need and the foundation for a stable, fully realized life. Throughout Texas and the U.S., the shortage of affordable housing has become critical, and vulnerable populations like seniors, low-income families and adults with disabilities are among the hardest hit. Providing an answer to this shortage is our goal at Volunteers of America Texas.
As one of the largest nonprofit providers of quality, affordable housing for low-income households in Texas and New Mexico, we have more than 40 housing communities where residents can live independently in a safe, welcoming environment.

Angel Reach’s Transitional Living Program offers young adults who have aged out of foster care a safe, temporary residence as they transition into society. Each year 200-300 youth age out of foster care in the greater Houston area. The majority of these young people lack the necessary life skills to make the next steps to becoming productive adults.

Permanent Supportive Housing
A proven solution to homelessness for the most vulnerable chronically homeless people is Permanent Supportive Housing or PSH. This program pairs affordable housing assistance, case management, and supportive services to promote independent living and tenancy skills while connecting people with community-based health care, treatment, and employment services. In addition to ending homelessness and increasing a client’s housing stability, permanent supportive housing has been shown to improve health and well-being while also providing a cost-effective solution to lower public costs associated with the use of crisis services such as shelters, hospitals, jails, and prisons.
