The agency provides food, clothing, and self-help programs to families on the Northside of Fort Worth and surrounding communities. The organization’s vision includes the whole family: physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual aspects. The most pressing needs are met through direct aid programs. Providing a hand-up, not just a handout, longer-term goals are met through case management, crisis counseling, and employment, education and community services. The agency’s aim is to aid and empower to provide or link people to opportunities to get back on their feet, to strengthen their families, and ultimately to strengthen their neighborhoods. Alumni from 2015 awarded this grant based on evaluation of past grants. No restrictions were placed on the grant.
