Promise House is leading the charge to end youth homelessness in North Texas. Help us move youth in crisis toward safety and success.
Sponsor an outing/passes for 15 youth to attend Ice Skating, A Drive-In Movie, Bowling, Dallas Aquarium or another great attraction! This is a great way for the youth to experience a great adventure during the holidays!
You and your group of friends or co-workers can host a virtual donation drive to help the youth of Promise House this holiday season. Set up a drive at your workplace, church or social group, or request guests of your virtual holiday party to bring an item from our Holiday Wish List! Apparel, bedding and gift cards are great examples of well-used drive items. Promise House accepts new and unused items.
The youth will use their imagination by creating various D.I.Y (Do It Yourself) projects such as Handprint Christmas Wreaths, Door Signs, Jewelry Beading, Gingerbread houses, Santa’s Hats and/or Stockings or Christmas ornaments. Donate Holiday Materials and/or Gingerbread Kits for the youth to enjoy!
Sponsor a meal (lunch or dinner). Food suggestions: Pasta, Tacos, Chicken, BBQ, Vegetables, etc. Soda beverages are prohibited/Ice Tea, Fruit Punch and Juice are accepted. Please prep/cater your meal for 25 youth and 6-8 Essential Staff. Note, we cannot guarantee the number of youth. Delivery Hours: 11 AM and 3 PM
Youth homelessness doesn’t stop – so we can’t either
Homeless youth need our help right now, more than ever. In this time of extreme uncertainty we are their constants and our commitment to meet their needs is unwavering. We know that the young people we serve are especially vulnerable given that they lack resources necessary for adequate healthcare and housing. Every day, Promise House leads the way in providing youth in our community access to the most basic needs – shelter, nourishment and access to healthcare. We will continue to provide compassionate care and meet the needs of the youth in our shelters.
Promise House is continuing to closely monitor the current state of affairs regarding COVID-19 across the nation and the implications in our local community. We are taking all measures necessary to safeguard the health and safety of our staff and youth in care working out detailed policies and procedures for how we will handle a quarantine (both of a single individual and for an entire facility).
In order to help minimize risk to youth we serve, Promise House is immediately taking the following actions:
As you will seek shelter and protection for your family, we will protect and represent our youth. We are their voice. We are their home. We are their family. During this time of uncertainty, we anticipate increased needs and a spike in requests for our services. Because of our generous supporters, we will be ready to answer the call.
