Faulk Foundation Mission

The Faulk Foundation’s support goes to a level where most charitable organizations simply can’t – plugging the gaps in our system that allow venerable

families to fall through the socio-economic safety nets and who are at immediate risk. The Faulk Foundation maintains the resources for immediate

intervention for those occasions when family crisis creates an unmanageable free fall in circumstances. The foundations efforts are to provide the needed

assistance for a cushioning effect and possible stabilization of the family or individuals dealing with extraordinary circumstances.

The key to our philosophy is solving the real problems that these families face through qualified giving. This means that we carefully review applications from

individuals and families to determine how we can help them, rather than just deciding how much we should give them. Many times our giving may be in the

form of money, but other times we offer clothing, furniture, bill payments, transportation, toys, household goods, medicine and medical supplies or perhaps just

a listening ear. No matter what form it comes in, assistance from the Faulk Foundation is designed to give those that we help what they need most, and to do that,

we first become closely engaged in their lives and situations.

In the current economic climate, more and more people are suffering. The need for heartfelt, wise and benevolent giving is greater than ever, and we need help to

fulfill our mission. By supporting the Faulk Foundation, you can be sure that your entire donation is providing direct assistance, and your investments of time and/

or money are truly making a positive impact in the life of someone who is in genuine need.

The needs are great. Let our aim be as well.

About The Bridge Over Troubled Waters

The Bridge Over Troubled Waters, Inc. (The Bridge) began in 1978 with a vision to reach out to those in need, to give them assistance in rebuilding their lives, and to help them to achieve greater self-determination. The desire of the founding board members was to provide a temporary shelter with a home-like environment that would serve as a “bridge” to assist individuals in returning to useful places in society. Thus, the original emergency shelter began with a handful of dedicated volunteers and the capacity for six families.

During its 31 year history, The Bridge has grown to become the 6th largest comprehensive crisis centers of its kind in Texas, serving more than 20,000 people annually. In addition to being one of the largest crisis centers in Texas, The Bridge is also the only agency of its kind serving southeast Harris County – a population of approximately 526,000.

The Bridge offers a wide range of supportive services, available in English as well as Spanish, to serve the needs of our clients.
