Paper Houses


As reported in People Magazine, the Houston Chronicle and many other news outlets, Paper Houses is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, founded by a Houston Police Sergeant with the help of the Houston Police Officers Patrolman  Union in 2002.


We are an all volunteer organization with no paid employees. Every penny of each donation helps the poor of the Mexican colonias.


We provided a million free meals to children ages 4 through 13 years at our school cafeterias each school year.


We support the Divine Providence Shelter for the aged and children shelters.


We respond to natural disasters.


We make life-changing and life saving medical care possible.


We provide help to local schools that include plumbing, electricity, building repairs and school books and desks.


Most important, we are searchers. We visit families as we walk the dirt streets of the colonias, delivering food and other items to the poor.


We also provide mission trips to the colonias.
