Our mission is to assist families and individuals whose lives have been affected by disasters, natural or otherwise, and have been displaced. We also help those in need by providing assistance to individuals suffering from HIV/AIDS and homelessness.
Over the past few years, the Survivor Foundation has donated more than $2.5 million dollars just in the Houston area alone. Initiatives such as the Temenos Place Apartments, the Knowles-Rowland Center, Houston’s Habitat for Humanity, The Beyoncé Experience World Tour Food Drives, the Music World Cares annual “Holiday Carnival,” and Hurricane Katrina Relief are just a few of the efforts in which the
Survivor Foundation continues to help the community.

Knowles Temenos Place Apartments
Temenos Community Development Corporation is nearing completion of its Knowles Temenos Place Apartments and we are excited for what the project will mean to our community.
Thanks to generous donations from Beyoncé and the Knowles Family’s (Tina, Mathew, and Solange) Survivor Foundation, The City of Houston’s Housing and Community Development Division, and hundreds of individual donors, the $5 million project is becoming a reality.
The project has been established to address the needs of vulnerable populations: the homeless, persons with HIV/AIDS, and the developmentally delayed. The inaugural project for Temenos CDC is the Knowles Temenos Place Apartments. It is
a 43 unit permanent, supportive housing single residential occupancy facility.
Though the establishment of 43 apartments only puts a small dent into the housing needs of these special populations, its creation helps to expand the community’s capacity to assist in this area and establishes an additional medium through which supportive services can be accessed. By partnering with the Bread of Life, Inc., other social service agencies and on-site staffing, the facility will have the capacity to provide supportive services to residents including but not limited to case management, life skills training, pre- and post-job skills development, counseling and mental health assessment.
Picture this…While you are resting in your bed, under a warm comfortable blanket, many of our brothers and sisters in Houston will be sleeping outside on the cold concrete or wet ground with no pillow on which to lay their head. Can you imagine sleeping outside in these elements? Now imagine a brand new 4 story apartment building, furnished with all the essentials to build the bridge from homelessness to a hopeful future.
