SOSS logo Mission Statement

It is the goal of the Society of St. Stephen Outreach Ministry and Seabrook United Methodist Church to provide short-term financial assistance (rent, utilities, groceries, etc.) to residents of ZIP Code 77586 when the unexpected happens. We also provide resources for additional assistance.

And our greatest goal is to provide a sense of hope.


"I am the light of the world.  Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." —John 8:12

Note from Julie
Hurricane Harvey is still causing families to struggle. SOSS continues to need your help. We are only able to schedule appointments when we have funds to assist with rent and utilities. Our order has come in for Holiday Meal foods and all the boxes will have been packed by Saturday (11/4). 100 boxes are stacked in the SOSS Waiting Room (now our stock room) and ready for giving. Thank you for helping families in need, now and throughout the year.
         —— Bless you & hugs, Julie

Hurricane Relief Center
open at the church
Tuesday —Thursday
10AM to 4PM

The Society of St Stephen Outreach Ministry (SOSS), located at Seabrook United Methodist Church, has been here since 1979, through Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Ike. We have coordinated food, water, survival necessities as well as financial assistance during these times. And we are doing so again for Hurricane Harvey. We have been designated as a hurricane relief center by the City of Seabrook. If you wish to make a donation to this relief effort, please know that our church pays all administrative and operating costs so that 100% of your donations go to help those in need. All donations will help, regardless of size. Checks should be made payable to “Seabrook United Methodist Church” with “SOSS Hurricane Relief” in the memo field. Alternatively, you can donate electronically by clicking on “e-Donate” on the above menu bar to open an account and make a one-time donation electronically. Enter the dollar amount you wish to donate in the “Other” box and put “SOSS Hurricane Relief” in the Description.
