NONPROFIT PARTNERING WITH THE LONG-TERM HOMELESS IN DALLAS
befriend the homeless.
Bridge The relational Gap.
Build Long-term Community.
The Human Impact is helping Dallas' homeless in a remarkably simple way. It is through the oldest means of helping others, of loving them. It's through friendship.
join us on the streets
Every Thursday and Saturday we take our volunteers out to the streets to meet our friends experiencing homelessness. We build new and old relationships when we go out. This is part of bridging the relational gap! Join us!
You Don't Have To Go Overseas To See Or Address Poverty. It's In Our Backyard.
Around 4,500 individuals are currently homeless in the city of Dallas.
Over 1,000 are chronically homeless (homeless for one year or longer).
LACK OF SUPPORT
The chronically homeless have often experienced trauma and lost their support system, so there is great need for relational support.
we're all human.
RELATIONAL > TRANSACTIONAL
There are many programs, services, and shelters to help the homeless. But often a deeper need goes unaddressed: the need for relationship.

As we walk alongside our friends, each person has the chance to flourish in work, a home, and most of all, Christ-centered community.
We are able to offer support to our friends by listening first and then walking with them as we connect them to our community and partners like you.
