Who We Are
We’ve Come So Far Since 2017
With a desire to give back running in her blood, a Mexican American Muslim Convert uncovering the large scale of unmet needs of thousands of underserved communities in her own city. Outreach In The Barrio started reaching out to the neighborhood (Barrio) where our Founder grew up. She began to collect food, clothing, toys, household items, furniture, etc and not only did she start connecting them with resources but also built trust and relationships with the beneficiaries.
As the heart and soul of this organization, Outreach In The Barrio’s team has grown exponentially to meet the ever-growing needs of our homeless problem in Houston, Texas. Through our focused programs and events, in a time frame of 17 months, we touched the lives of more than 18,000 unsheltered homeless in Houston, Texas.
From our humble beginnings in Houston, we have inspired others in other cities to create a system to consistently serve humanity. We are tirelessly working to set the foundation for our future growth in Texas and beyond. We thank you for your support and hope you will continue with us on this journey.
