Trees of Hope was founded in 1990 as a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization with the specific purpose to conduct fund raising activities for the exclusive benefit of Star of Hope, Houston's largest agency for the homeless.
Heather Holmes, Trees of Hope President recognized Lifetime Board members and special guest Honorary Life Trustee Lynn Wyatt for her decades of service to Trees of Hope. Linda and Roseann recognized Trees of Hope Lifetime Guild Members present, honoring each with a pink rose decorated with special cards made by the children of Star of Hope. Rachel Boehler and Laura Jones, last year's Gala chairs, presented a check for $625,000 to Star of Hope CEO and President Hank Rush. The proceeds from the 2014 Trees of Hope gala benefit children’s programs at Star of Hope. President Rush added that the gift from Trees of Hope is the largest annual gift for children.
The Trees of Hope Guild is our primary source of volunteers. Guild members bring enthusiasm, ideas and dedication in our support of Houston's homeless population through Star of Hope.
