Current Jesse Tree Projects

We are The Jesse Tree

We are not a social service organization!

We are not a healthcare provider!

We are not a Church!!

We are a faith-based, convening organization that connects, rebuilds and uplifts people with problems.

How do we do it?
We see people, not problems.
We use common sense.
We have developed tried and true methods that break chronic, destructive cycles,
We use technology to make things happen quickly and effectively.
We go the distance and encourage holistic, integrated care for each individual in any given household.
We have developed an "APP" that will help you and your organization add a level of dignity, efficiency and compassionate care that is unprecedented…. We can demonstrate it to you and your staff in less than thirty minutes.

Current Jesse Tree Programs:

Contrary to popular rumors, The Jesse Tree did not close its doors after Hurricane Ike. We lost our buildings on Galveston Island and the Bolivar Peninsula, but we actually increased our service to the community by using wireless technology and going mobile. In fact, we stepped to the plate, organized a multi-disciplinary intake and distribution center at Holy Rosary Church and helped thousands of our neighbors rebuild their lives. Due to the foresight and vision of Mainland Medical Center, we have had offices, classrooms and warehouse space at Mainland Medical Center since 2001. THe durable medical equipment, medical supplies and class materials were high and dry during Ike and we have continued the following projects to this day:
