We privately operate 16 residential homes, a Clubhouse for the mentally ill and a large downtown soup kitchen — not as an agency, but as a ministry motivated by the belief that all are created with dignity and worth.
Magnificat Houses, Inc. is a faith-based, non-profit, charitable, 501(c)(3) organization, in adherence with the Federal Internal Revenue Code and chartered by the State of Texas in 1968. Our EIN is 23-7003471.
IRS Charitable Organization Letter
We are a community in the fullest sense of the word. All who come here are wanted and needed as valued members of our extended family. And just like a family, our residents and members contribute to running their houses, volunteer in the larger community and work, dine and play together.
Here, individual skills, talents and work preferences are discovered and respected. We truly care about the wellbeing of each resident and member, and assure they are taking steps forward. Thus empowered, everyone works toward their own maximum potential for self-reliance. No one is just a number. After completing our program, some residents stay on employed as staff in important positions.
Although based on the Corporal Works of Mercy, we remain nonsectarian. Attending religious services is voluntary. Counseling is available through our chaplain, trained staff and volunteers.
