Let’s leave 2020 in the past and build a brighter 2021!
As we move away from the holiday season, it’s time to look to the future and think about the positive change we want to make in our lives in 2021.
The hard thing about goals, though, is developing a plan to bring them to fruition. At Endeavors, we’re dedicated to helping people in need recover and rebuild after experiencing crises of many kinds. With offices in Texas, North Carolina, Florida, and Puerto Rico, our teams have the expertise, resources, and compassion to help you build the life you deserve.

Residents receive individualized assistance developing a housing stability plan that helps them build a safe, stable, and self-sufficient life through services like skills workshops, education, job training, child care assistance, financial counseling, and mental health care.

But we’re here to tell you: You are valuable. In fact, people with disabilities often possess qualities that make them uniquely strong assets to the workforce. Through our Endeavors Unlimited program, we provide housing, life skills training, and supportive employment opportunities for adults with disabilities. private, We partner with commercial and governmental agencies to create sustainable employment opportunities to help them lead stable and self-sufficient lives.

With over a decade of experience helping people recover from natural disasters, we know how important it is to start the recovery process as quickly as possible.
