When we consider people being homeless, we easily understand their need for 1) shelter and 2) for programs and services to help them get out of homelessness. What we often don't consider is that homelessness includes the loss of a support system.
Our work is focused on that third piece of the puzzle. We show up and want to support people for the long haul, no matter what that looks like. Sometimes it means working for two months to get someone into rehab because they slip through the cracks. Sometimes it means going to the doctor's office across the City with someone who is going blind.
In essence, we have a consistent presence in a small neighborhood in South Dallas, in hope that we will be invited to enter people's lives. Just like us, everyone's stories and needs are different. Sometimes the biggest need is physical; sometimes emotional; sometimes mental. Our end goal is that, as we work with different people who have different kinds of needs, we might all experience Jesus and his love in new ways.
Our Staff includes Elisabeth Jordan and Elissa Romines. Any donations given to this fundraising page further our work of supporting and caring for homeless men and women in South Dallas.
Thank you for your support!
