Chris Hanslik Begins Term as Chairman of SEARCH Homeless Services
BoyarMiller Chairman Chris Hanslik became Chair of SEARCH Homeless Services on July 1, after serving on the board of directors and on various committees since 2010.
“Homelessness hurts. So many in our community live on the streets or in shelters,” said Chris. “SEARCH and our community partners have accomplished a great deal, and while we believe a Houston without homelessness is achievable, there is still work to be done.”
Each year, SEARCH Homeless Services helps thousands of individuals and families move from the streets into jobs and safe, stable homes through many services and support programs.
“SEARCH is an organization that captures my passion for helping others and giving back because we are making a difference in improving our community and individual lives,” said Hanslik. “As clients move into homes, we also support them with programs to help them become job ready and gain employment. It’s transformative.”
SEARCH services go beyond meeting basic needs to ensuring that clients obtain permanent housing, increase their income, and live a more healthful life. Once clients are placed in a stable home, SEARCH provides extensive case management and support services to help them stabilize their lives in order to remain housed.
“We really work to break the cycle of homelessness,” said Hanslik. “By investing in children and families, SEARCH provides them with a brighter future. I feel very fortunate for our family’s blessings and the opportunities we have been given. So supporting SEARCH is my way of helping to create change and opportunities for others to have a better life.”
