Our Ministry

The churches that make up InSpirit Patient Housing have been bringing financially manageable housing to Texas Medical Center patients and their families and friends for forty years. The coalition, originally named "The Church Apartment Ministry", began as an informal collaboration of churches, all with a shared commitment to serving people who travel to Houston for serious medical care. Each church leases, maintains, furnishes, and sublets its own apartments, and the group shares a common application process—with the goal of ensuring that those who need an apartment can get one at the right time.

Why Do We Call Ourselves a Ministry?

The churches and volunteers associated with InSpirit Patient Housing all share a single aim: to care for God's children by meeting the needs of people who may be stressed or anxious because they must travel for serious medical treatment. We carry out this service as one way of extending God’s love across our community to all who are in need. Our focus is always on our residents' needs, and we welcome people of any faith, or none. Our volunteers are caring, experienced, and sensitive. We will never turn anyone away because of their beliefs or pressure anyone to discuss spiritual issues. At the same time, we recognize that dealing with serious illness can be a time of spiritual stress, and our volunteers are here for you if you want or need spiritual support.
