In 1982 the Ministry had its humble beginnings by Sister Alice Louise Potts a Sister from St. Mary's of the Woods, Sisters of Devine Providence and Suzanne Garcia together began to provide cloths to those in need, it became obvious that we needed at facility to work out of. Together we opened a modest Thrift Store and Social Service Agency. As donations arrived it enabled us to add food and additional social services. Eventually, the Ministry became a partner with the Houston Food Bank and the Ministry was able to evolve to what it has become today.
Our Mission is to provide food and essentials to those living in poverty. East End Social Services, Inc., provides the basic nutritional needs through the distribution of a healthy diet. The agency goal is to support individuals on their journey to becoming self- sufficient in a employment supportive environment. The agency serves the working poor, unemployed, seniors, unhoused and the disabled on a weekly basis. Services are provided to those in need with the help of individuals with developmental disabilities.
