We work towards the transformation of our city through acts of mercy and justice, feeding the hungry, welcoming the stranger, and supporting and mentoring the marginalized.
Committed to long-term transformation of South Dallas
In 2017, HP Pres made a ten-year commitment to come alongside ministry partners working in South Dallas with the goal of creating long-term transformation in low-income and marginalized neighborhoods. Strategies include working to reduce crime, increase educational opportunities, mentoring students, neighborhood beautification, and developing leadership and job training opportunities.
We do this through strategic partnerships with organizations in South Dallas.
Homelessness & Food Insecurity
We partner with Austin Street Center, OurCalling, and Body & Soul to provide relief to the homeless population in Dallas.
Austin Street Center offers emergency shelter and related services to the homeless of Dallas in a compassionate, Christian environment. Highland Park Pres provides the food and volunteers to serve 250 men and women dinner on the second Wednesday of every month.
OurCalling finds friends under bridges, in shelters, and on the street They come alongside them to help them find more than the basics they need to get by for another day or another week. They find the friendship, encouragement, and motivation to take their first steps toward a new, more sustainable way of living—one guided by the light of Christ.
Body & Soul is a partnership of local churches that have been instrumental in providing physical and spiritual nourishment to homeless and at-risk populations for over 20 years. Every third Saturday morning, HP Pres provides a home-cooked and substantial breakfast alongside worship music and bible teaching.
Over 40 missionaries in 20 countries around the world
We support mission workers within faith-based organizations that serve and bring the Gospel to the unreached in the United States and beyond. You can be a part of this mission by helping to encourage these dedicated missionaries.
