Braes Interfaith Ministries
Braes Interfaith Ministries, a collaboration of Judeo-Christain congregations, provides physical, spiritual, and emotional assistance to persons in need within selected zip codes in Southwest Houston.
How Braes Operates
Braes is comprised of representatives appointed by each of the thirteen congregations which support Braes Interfaith Ministries. The member congregations provide financial support, food, clothing, items for the resale shop, and support for special activities such as the School Supplies Program and the Holiday Food Baskets.
who our Clients are
The target population for our services include all individuals who reside in this area and are experiencing a emergency financial crisis. Some in this population find themselves in the near homeless situations that re generally overlooked by assisting agencies and federal/state/city-subsidized programs. One emergency may deplete a family of any saved resources and leave them without funds to pay monthly living expenses such as food, rent, and utility bills.
Souper Bowl of Caring
Souper Bowl of Caring is a national movement of young people working to fight hunger and poverty in their own communities around the time of the Super Bowl football game. In the weeks leading up to or on Super Bowl Sunday, young people take up a collection (many use a soup pot), asking for one dollar or one item of food for people in need. They give 100% of their donation directly to the local hunger-relief charity of their choice.
