At Second Mile, we know that meeting the needs of our neighbors in poverty takes a whole community. That's why we combine our time, money, and efforts to give hope to local families in need. Second Mile has been serving our neighbors in Fort Bend since 1990 and has the infrastructure and processes to serve a high volume of people in a short time, while also building deep relationships. We provide food, clothing, spiritual care, and classes to help neighbors get and stay out of poverty. Food is the number one service provided because it is the greatest daily need and we believe no one should go to bed hungry.

Neighbors can find support at Second Mile in a judgment-free, uplifting atmosphere. We're here to cheer them on as they work toward the dreams and desires they have for themselves and their family. Whether they need a listening ear, prayer, or simply food, we are here for them.

1990 - A group of concerned men and women founded Second Mile Mission Center to reach out to the less fortunate in our community. The group started by paying light bills and distributing food they collected in the closet of a local church.

2002 - Second Mile became an independent 501(c)3 nonprofit with its own location in Stafford, Texas.

A few years later - Second Mile began Fort Bend County's only free medical and dental clinic, with volunteer doctors, dentists, and other health care professionals donating their time to help adults without health insurance.

2012 - The organization began a homeless outreach to build relationships and provide care for people who live on the streets. In the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, Second Mile provided food, water, clothing, household items, and other resources to thousands of affected families.

2016 - Second Mile has done the same following Hurricane Ike, Brazos River flooding, Hurricane Harvey, the pandemic, and the 2021 winter storm. Hurricane Harvey relief efforts reached 130 families a day at Second Mile's facility and hundreds more through neighborhood deliveries.

2020 - During the pandemic, Second Mile served as many as 1,200 families in a five-hour period.

2021 - In 2013, Second Mile moved to a new leased facility in Missouri City at the corner of Beltway 8 and 90. Generous donors helped purchase the location in 2021 to ensure long-term stability and the ability to help through future disasters and ongoing community need.
