Catholic New Creation, Inc. is a Non Profit 501(c)3 public charity Texas corporation, formed in 2002.  It was formed to meet a definite need for a highly structured Christian faith based nonprofit transitional living facility, dedicated to rebuilding the lives of Christian men coming out of TDCJ state prisons and Harris County jails.  With that vision a Board of Directors was formed and major fundraising began.

 

In July 2007,  Isaiah House opened to our first residents at a leased housing facility on North Main Street.  In November 2008, Isaiah House moved to our present facility located on Ashworth Street. In 2010, Providence House was gifted to us.

 

Today we have 2 housing facilities with a total combined capacity to serve 30 residents.

 

Isaiah House and Providence House are Non Contract residential transitional living facilities approved by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice Pardons and Parole Department.  We provide housing for our Christian brothers transitioning from incarceration.  Today we are recognized as one of the best transitional housing facilities for ex-offenders in the State of Texas.

Our Mission

The Isaiah House and Providence House programs are the culmination of years of experience dealing in prison ministry.  We recognize the need to assist newly released men in making their transition back into society.   Our experienced staff, together with our knowledgeable Board Members are committed to providing the needed support for ex-offenders through our housing programs.

 

We bring healing and hope to those who have been released from incarceration.  We believe that Jesus is present in all people regardless of who they are, where they come from, or what they have done; that it is only through faith, prayer, and reconciliation that former felons can hope to change their lives; and become productive and respected citizens.
