Angela House is a transition home in the heart of Houston that provides women a loving environment to adjust to life after incarceration.
Court St. Jane Frances de Chantal #2699 organizes donation drives throughout the year to help support Angela House residents. On an annual basis, we'll schedule a Saturday visit to provide lunch and fellowship with the women. We'll bring a craft, such as decorating Valentine cookies or making plush blankets, for the ladies to keep or share. Our favorite event is to provide Christmas gift cards for the children of the residents.
Throughout the year, we'll check in with our Sisters in Christ at Angela House for any special needs, such as stocking up on food items or toiletries. We also collect new or gently used clothing for the 'Angela House Boutique' as many arrive women arrive with only the clothes they are wearing.
