Coronavirus COVID-19 Resources

Dallas Hope Charities’ office is closed until May 12, 2020. Food programs are also suspended during this time at our usual space, but we have partnered with several community organizations to provide much needed assistance to those in need during this time. Our staff is working remotely and is easily accessible by email.

During the world-wide outbreak of COVID-19, the World Health Organization encourages everyone to:

  • Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a disposable tissue or flexed elbow when you cough or sneeze
  • Avoid close contact (1 meter or 3 feet) with people who are unwell
  • Stay home and self-isolate from others in the household if you feel unwell

For anyone impacted health-wise or financially from COVID-19, we have started a list of available resources that you may turn to for assistance.
