Residential Programs

Promise House offers a variety of programs, all with the goal to end youth homelessness. We have both short-term and long-term residential services for youth experiencing homelessness. Promise House also impacts the larger community through our outreach and counseling services.

Emergency Youth Shelter Program

The Emergency Youth Shelter Program provides a temporary sanctuary for homeless, runaway and abandoned youth until a permanent home is found.

Transitional Living Program

The Transitional Living Program equips homeless youth ages 18 to 21 with the skills and education to become independent, productive members of society.

Wesley Inn Program

The Wesley Inn Program guides homeless pregnant and parenting teen mothers to become healthy, independent and nurturing parents.

Fannie C. Harris Youth Center

A first-of-its kind collaboration to serve homeless youth in Dallas ISD by transforming a former elementary school into the Fannie C. Harris youth center.

What Our Youth Are Saying

“When I think of Promise House, I think of a better way of life. If it weren’t for Promise House, I am 100 percent sure I wouldn’t be in college— I might not be living at all today. It is one of the best things that could ever have happened for me.”

“Everyone at Promise House has big hearts. They encourage me, they make me laugh when I’m upset. They’re like my second family.”

“If I didn’t have Promise House in my life, I would probably still be on the streets. I am sure that I would be drinking and doing drugs like so many others I know. But I grew up with a conscience. And Promise House has helped me to stay true to my conscience.”

“I’m so thankful for the opportunities that Promise House made possible for me.”

“When you go through things, don’t give up but look for the things that God has given you. Promise House is a multifaceted organization that will help you. The Wesley Inn Program gave me more parenting skills. They helped me finish high school and go to college. Without daycare and the help of Promise House, it wouldn’t be possible.”
