North Texas Food Bank
Since the North Texas Food Bank opened 30 years ago, NTFB has achieved a great deal of success fighting hunger. However, the issue has become much larger and far more complex. The lingering effects of a bad economy continue to bring new faces of hunger to our doors, many for the first time in their lives, and through no fault of their own. To make a meaningful impact today, NTFB cannot simply move more food out the door. NTFB is ReThinking Hunger — providing healthier food, developing new ways to extend its reach, and improving the lives of those they serve. More info can be found at http://ntfb.org/
Captain Hope's Kids
Captain Hope's Kids was founded in 1989 and in 1994 changed the name to Captain Hope's Kids and reset their mission to meeting the critical needs of homeless children. The HERD recognized the needs stated in the 2010 census of Dallas County's homeless that showed women and children made up 47% of the known homeless population. On any given night in North Texas, more than 1,100 children will fall asleep in homeless and domestic violence shelters. Sixty-six percent will be under the age of nine and thirty-one percent are infants and toddlers under the age three years. When Captain Hope needed jackets for these kids to be warm this winter, we had to help! For information on Captain Hope's Kids go to http://captainhope.org/
Brings not just a legacy of 70 years of service to West Dallas, but hope for a better life to the more than 25,000 people living in the 75212 zip code. The majority of operational funding for BBHH comes from individuals; the balance from foundations, corporations, and churches. BBHH is led by a Board of Trustees, the Executive Director and a staff of eight with a host of volunteers teaching classes, working in the free Grocery Store, leading children’s programs, and helping the staff maintain the facility. A Women’s Council acts as a support organization to all that BBHH does for the community it serves.More info can be found at http://bbhh.org.
