Our History

The Crowley House of Hope opened its doors April 17, 1994 at its first facility on South Texas Street in response to the growing need for an assistance program in the Crowley Independent School District area. Within a few months of opening its doors, Crowley House of Hope had outgrown that tiny first facility and moved to its second location on Main Street in August of 1994. October 1, 2001 Crowley House of Hope moved into a new 5000 square foot building, located at 216 North Magnolia Street.

A thrift store was opened to serve the community and raise money. It is operated entirely by volunteers. The thrift store hours are 9:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday. In 2004, a new 3000 square foot building was opened for needed expansion and today houses the Medical Clinic. In 2006, a third building was built and is used to distribute items for the "Share the Love" and "Back to School" programs. In 2013, an addition to the third building was opened for food storage and distribution.
