Help us Create a Safe Place for Moms and Kids…

The Year of the Children – 2015

Homeless kids on the street break your heart. Without a home, without a bed, without protection, without a smile….their hearts are broken too. Reynolds Home wants to give them back their hearts. Kids are the absolute reason why Reynolds Home exists: making kids safe, helping moms to know how to keep them safe and make a family wherever they go. This is how we remake hearts, theirs and ours.

Reynolds Home is a private non-profit shelter located in El Paso, Texas. A two-story farmhouse, built in 1926 and owned by Dr. and Mrs. William Reynolds, was inherited by their daughter, Virginia Tullius in 1990. She and her husband, Raymond, and twelve children were already accustomed to making room and welcoming into their own home families in crisis. So began Reynolds Home as a shelter for homeless children and their mothers.

Members of the Reynolds-Tullius Family have continued to invest themselves since then, creating many opportunities and options for homeless persons, which has formed the backbone of current efforts to prevent and relieve homelessness in the city. Reynolds Home is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2015 with the more than 700 women and 1700 children, who were welcomed and helped to move beyond the crises which forced them out of their own homes.

The mission of the Reynolds Home is to provide shelter, security and basic services to women that teach and encourage mothers to cherish and respect their own dignity and to build on their own strengths which enables them to provide independently for themselves and their children.
