BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF OUR PROGRAM
Our organization is designed to feed the Homeless and help under privileged families. We live by the standard that everyone deserves to eat and to eat on a regular basis. Transition can mean a complete change of direction or focus, moving from one phase to another. Either way, transition has its own unique challenges that must be identified and addressed if we are to successfully follow God’s plan for our lives. Re-entering into Society is often very difficult and people tend to need a helping Hand-Up and that is what the
HOMELESS COALITION OF DALLAS DOES, we give a “HandUp”.
MEETING THE NEEDS OF THE HOMELESS
In the Dallas area alone, About 80,000 families – typically a single woman with young children – are homeless on any given night, according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Experts say the numbers are probably much higher than the current estimates because homeless families are less noticeable than what people usually see on their streets. Keeping this in mind, our program is designed to meet the need of the Homeless by providing, food, shelter, clothing and toiletries; all the basic needs that are not currently being met.
As an onsite feeding organization our philosophy is that everyone deserves to eat and to eat on a regular basis, regardless of income, no income, race, ethnicity, physical or mental limitation, religion or age. We feel that the “Homeless is entitled to dignity, independence and respect.
As an onsite feeding organization our Goals and Mission co exists, that is, to make a difference in hunger. We are committed to making a difference in hunger . To help as many people as possible to not go to bed hungry.
Our Mission is to make a difference and to work with our co-workers, law makers, clients, service providers and other organizations to make this happen. Our goals are to enable individuals and families to eat as often as possible and to help them achieve self-sufficiency for themselves and for their families.
