Miracle City, a 5-acre community in Conroe planning to serve those experiencing homelessness, dedicated its Empowerment Center Oct. 31, according to Compassion United, the local support ministry spearheading the project. Over 100 guests walked the grounds, prayed over the campus and signed the metal beams of the building, Compassion United said in a press release.

“These scriptures, notes and signatures will be enclosed during the next stage of construction making them a part of the very foundation that will hold the walls of the building in place for decades to come,” the ministry wrote in the release.


Miracle City, located on Foster Drive, broke ground in October 2020, Community Impact Newspaper previously reported. The community will offer transitional and long-term supportive housing, as well as a dining hall, church, a food pantry and other amenities, to up to 92 people when fully built out.

Upon completion, the Empowerment Center will temporarily house Compassion United’s Conroe House of Prayer, the release said, which provides food and clothing six days a week to individuals experiencing homelessness. The ministry is planning to complete the center by January, but construction delays might push it back to early spring 2020.
