We are here because we care about people who are homeless.
When we showed up on the streets of South Dallas in 2013, we came to listen and learn. As we listened, we learned that many long-term homeless people's stories of homelessness start with the loss of their support system. Divorce or death of a spouse, child, or loved one create a destabilization. Our unique response to this destabilization is to come alongside the chronically homeless, becoming a long-term support system in their lives. We choose to love the chronically homeless, a group that is often forgotten and marginalized. We see dignity, worth, value and most prominently the image of God reflected in our homeless friends. As we love, we get to experience how we are loved by God ... in our messiness and joy, and through our growth.We delight in hearing their stories, building trust, and learning how we can support them as they work towards stability in community. We are friends, in it with some of society's most marginalized for the long haul, and we consider this work a privilege.
