Mark Pitre

As a Housing Specialist for Endeavors, Mark Pitre secures housing for Veterans in communities across Texas, including Waco, El Paso, Killeen, Temple and the San Antonio metropolitan area.

Utilizing extensive knowledge of America’s complex housing systems, Mark helps clients navigate the system to find stability and rediscover dignity through his work with a variety of government and local philanthropic and community resources.

Mark has worked as a housing specialist for more than a decade. His career has been shaped by his own struggles with the instability of homelessness. He battled addiction for two decades – and homelessness for more than 10 years – before landing at Haven for Hope, a nonprofit for people in Bexar County, Texas, who are experiencing homelessness.

After graduating from the program in 2011, he became the first former client to work on the Haven for Hope campus – paving a trail for others who have successfully transitioned into support roles at the center.

After more than seven years at Haven for Hope, Mark joined Endeavors in 2018 to bring his focus more on supporting Veterans. He was inspired by the loss of his brother, a Navy veteran, who committed suicide. At Endeavors, Mark is enrolled in a Zero Suicide Training program to help clients and anyone else in need.

Mark’s work at Endeavors – as both an employee and a member of the board – is inspired by his recognition that the stability of a home can be the first step to help vulnerable populations get back on their feet. He offers his clients a full range of support: locating and securing housing, assisting with documents and appointments, and – always – following up to build relationships. His goal is to one day establish and run a Permanent Supportive Housing apartment complex for veterans, using his story and experiences to help support others.
