More Details

From our humble beginnings in 1988 to present day, CitySquare has grown into a broad community development organization offering a comprehensive array of social services that address four key areas related to the persistence of poverty: hunger, health, housing, and hope. Together, our 17 social service programs provide more than 50,000 human touches in Dallas, Waco, and Denver, Colorado.

 

Date: Tuesday, September 18 

Time: 5 to 7 p.m.

Location: Café Momentum, 1510 Pacific Ave, Dallas, TX 75201         

Volunteers needed: up to 50

 

Volunteers are needed to assemble laundry kits for CitySquare’s neighbors.

Laundry kits are a luxury item for our neighbors and will be distributed directly to our neighbors through our Homeless Outreach Team (HOT), case managers with our housing programs, and coaches at our Transition Action Resource Center (TRAC). Our Homeless Outreach Team works closely with our homeless neighbors to make sure they have access to necessary resources. Our case managers provide supportive services to neighbors housed in more than 700 units of housing. Our TRAC coaches work closely with youth aging out of the foster care system to provide them with access to resources and opportunities that promote self-efficiency.

 

Parking: This project is in downtown Dallas, so arrive early to find nearby parking (there is a parking garage next door).
