Holt’s House of Hope is a place in Boca Chica that exists to provide a safe place of community for youth ages 8-18. The girls and guys can come 2-3 (specified days) times each week to receive a hot meal, have access to shower facilities, engage in sports, games, art, and receive Biblical & Discipleship training. Many are living in poverty, and we have a system in place for them to earn points for school attendance, completing tasks, attending meetings, memorizing Scripture, and other things. They can use these points in an onsite “store” to get things such as hygiene products clothing, shoes, school supplies, snacks, and toys/sports equipment. We also provide school uniforms and supplies for each child at Holt’s House.
We work to break the cycle that the culture is instilling in the youth of Boca Chica by providing Biblical, educational, and vocational training to ensure the youth have greater self worth & better career opportunities for their future.
We believe that real hope comes from knowing Jesus Christ as Lord & Savior. We want the Gospel to be the center of our day to day time together so that it becomes the very foundation they build their lives upon. Our hope is that through Bible study, small groups, 1:1 discipleship, and fun the youth will become a community of men & women who desire to continue breaking the cycle of culture and making disciples in the future.
What is Holt's House of Hope?
Holt’s House of Hope began as a means to honor the legacy of Holt Rowland, a young man whose life ended prematurely in 2010. Holt’s House of Hope serves as a community center in Boca Chica that primarily focuses on investing into the lives of boys and girls through education, skill development and biblical discipleship.
What We Do
At Holt’s House of Hope, we present young men the opportunity to develop their potential through three primary areas: education, training and biblical discipleship. We work hard to meet the needs of these young men, starting with food and clothing, and hope to give them a chance for a better future and ultimately hope to change lives through the gospel of Jesus Christ.
