Contribute to New Shelter

Help Give Victims a Life Free From Violence:

Support the Louise Wood Angel House

Crisis Center of West Texas is building  a new shelter in order to continue serving families adequately and to serve more families. The City of Odessa  donated land adjacent to the current administrative office to build on. JSA Architects created plans for the new shelter, and the $5 million Louise Wood Angel House is expected to open in December 2018.

The 16,000 square-foot facility will feature 18 bedrooms, 18 bathrooms, a large kitchen, a 3,400 square-foot child play area, fencing and state of the art security. The current Angel House Shelter has eight bedrooms and two community bathrooms that at times up to 38 residents are forced to share at capacity. The stovetop in the kitchen is not functional due to fire code, and there are ongoing maintenance issues.

Crisis Center of West Texas thanks the West Texas community for their support of this project. The groundbreaking ceremony for the Louise Wood Angel House was held in December of 2017. Special thanks to the Wood Family Foundation for the generous $1 Million contribution that kickstarted the campaign.
