Give Responsibly Campaign

Welcome to the City of Dallas Office of Homeless Solutions’ Give Responsibly Campaign (GRC). Our goal with this campaign is to redirect street charity from the homeless to charitable and nonprofit organizations that specialize in serving the City’s most vulnerable population. We believe that giving directly to the homeless can prevent them from receiving help and support from professional service providers. By partnering with existing organizations, we can fulfill the needs of our neighbors with dignity and compassion while promoting systemic change.

The purpose of this campaign is to reduce the effects of street charity.

Give To The Communities Foundation of Texas

You can support our homeless neighbors by contributing to the City of Dallas’ Office of Homeless Solutions Communities Foundation of Texas. Your tax-deductible contribution will be used for items to include emergency shelter, rapid rehousing, permanent supportive housing, and diversion resources.

Give Responsibly  

We understand the desire to give directly to individuals who approach you and ask for help. Whether it is providing a meal or spare change, doing so inadvertently encourages individuals to continue illegally soliciting and is a temporary solution to a more complex problem.

Make your gift of time and money count. Download our responsible giving fliers in English or Español, and please share with your community.

Give To Any Member In The All Neighbors Coalition

The GRC is an opportunity for all of us to make a difference in the lives of those who need it the most. Instead of giving cash to illegal solicitation or providing food and clothing directly to homeless individuals, we encourage you to donate to reputable organizations equipped to provide comprehensive assistance to those experiencing homelessness. These organizations have the infrastructure and expertise to provide housing, medical care, job training, and other vital services to help our homeless neighbors recover.

Click here for a list of organizations that are members of the All Neighbors Coalition and are in need of high-demand items and volunteers throughout the year. We encourage you to reach out to them directly.
