Founder Dottie Compton distributed blankets and groceries from her vehicle to people in need in the community of Conroe, Texas, for 10 years prior to officially forming a non-profit. We are proud of our small beginning as it is a constant reminder of how time-after-time God opened incredible opportunities to expand His work through this ministry. After years of faithful service, a growing need arose for an establishment where people could come to receive assistance rather than wait for our teams to come to them.
COM obtained its 501(c)(3) status in 1998. Soon after, in 1999, Angelic Resale opened its doors to help provide for the expanding ministry of Creative Outreach, as well as connect those who have with those in need. Our Emergency Assistance program, operating out of Angelic Resale, was created to provide financial assistance, clothing, and food to individuals and families who needed help. Emergency Assistance, now Community Hope, works with churches, schools, and agencies through our food and clothing voucher program.
