North Dallas Shared Ministries
NDSM is an interfaith community of volunteers, partners and collaborators providing charitable assistance to persons in need. NDSM is one of the Missions to which we regularly give, but they are seeing higher than average need from their clients right now. 
Hope Supply meets the critical needs of homeless and at-risk children across North Texas by providing necessities including diapers, clothing, school supplies and toys. to enhance their lives. They provide diapers and other essentials to social service organizations, including homeless shelters, transitional living centers, school districts and state agencies. We currently have a network of 70+ partner agencies, ensuring that our items are given directly to the families and children that need them the most. Right now, they have seen requests for their help increase by almost 300%.
Healing Hands Ministries 
Healing Hands Ministries welcomes every neighbor with barrier-free access to healthcare.  On March 16th, HHM fully activated their emergency preparedness plan.  The crisis call team has answered more than 17,000 calls and they have launched a tele-health model with 300 completed clinical visits in the first two weeks of launch.  They continue to care for one of the most vulnerable populations in our community - mothers and babies.   
The mission of Dallas Christian Women's Job Corps (DCWJC) is to offer a supportive environment where women in need or one step away from crisis are equipped for self-sufficiency and job-readiness skills while providing a context in which women help women.  Your gift can help provide housing, utility, and medical assistance to their clients. 
City Square (TRAC)
CitySquare set up an Emergency Relief Fund to cover critical, unexpected costs associated with caring for our neighbors during this crisis. We continue to serve our neighbors through key services: the Food Pantry meets our neighbors' basic food needs, the Dallas Connector provides free, essential transportation for homeless neighbors, and the Transition Resource Action Center's (TRAC) Dallas office is open as an Emergency Resource Center for Homeless Youth, including food and social support. We were already serving a record number of neighbors annually, and with the economic/employment impact of COVID-19, service demand has increased again.
Each year our neighbor, Tiferet Israel, holds their Chili Cook-off to raise support for the charitable work of Jewish Family Services of Dallas.  The WOC and our RLBC Youth had planned to attend but COVID concerns made cancelling the entire cook-off necessary.  Despite losing this valuable support, JFS continues to provide emergency food supplies, social and employment services, mental health counseling, and elder support to folks in Dallas regardless of race or religion.
