What we do

Dallas Hope Charities unites to care for those in need throughout our social and geographical communities. By collaborating and hosting several programs, we are fulfilling our mission of providing food, shelter, and services that instill dignity, stability, and Hope For All.

HOW WE HELP

We are proud to operate Dallas Hope Center™, the city’s first LGBTQ-focused Homeless Youth Transitional Living Center and extension program. By helping provide inclusive spaces for at-risk, homeless LGBTQ youth (18 to 24), we hope to change the lives of those who experience high rates of conduct disorder, post-traumatic stress, and suicidal behavior.

In June 2020, we launched Collective Hope Coalition™, an initiative aimed at eliminating suicide among LGBTQ community in the Dallas area.

Dallas Hope Charities is working with the Dallas Police Department through the Safe Place program to spread awareness and education in the community by encouraging victims to report ALL crimes, especially hate crimes, in hopes of reducing the risk of suicide within our LGBTQ+ community. The Safe Place program will help bring the LGBTQ+ community, the Dallas Police Department, local businesses, social organizations, and education centers together to create a safe place and city for all. 

We are working to develop Hopeful Discussions, a series that is geared toward reducing homophobia by increasing understanding of LGBTQ+ identities and issues to educate and build a more inclusive community.

With your help, through volunteering and donations, we can help end hopelessness and create change in the community.
