PAST PROJECTS & PARTNERS
Annual Day of Compassion Each March,
the Metamorphosis Compassion Team and professional volunteers make it a day to remember for 55 deserving women. The Fort Bend Women’s Center, The Star of Hope, Bridge Over Troubled Waters, Wellspring Village and other transitional living centers select women to attend the Day of Compassion. Professional hair stylists, make up artists, nail technicians, masseuse, and others donate services to treat the women to a day in the beauty salon. Metamorphosis volunteers encourage the women during their stay. Vendors provide meals, beverages and a bag of goodies for all attendees.

Back to School Supply Drive for Girls
To equip our girls for a productive and successful school year, the Metamorphosis Compassion Team prepared backpacks loaded with school supplies. Girls were encouraged to build self-esteem, to join the anti-bullying program and to pursue the school year with excellence.
Feed the Homeless
The Metamorphosis Compassion Team served over 200 homeless persons meals in Hermann Park. Volunteers assisted with food preparation and distribution.
The Houston Food Bank
Twice annually the Metamorphosis Compassion Team volunteers with Houston Food Bank to meet the needs of the hungry in Houston. Awareness of food shortages reminds us that a hand out and help up is often needed.
Fed about 200 homeless in the Herman park area. This was done in 2012 and will go again the 2nd and 4th quarter of 2015.
