“Together with our Board of Directors, we set a lofty goal for North Texas Giving Day 2022. We have full confidence in our supporters and the people of Dallas to help us reach this goal,” stated Bruce Butler, CEO of UGM Dallas. “The COVID pandemic and now tough economic conditions have placed more people in situations causing them to need extra help. We have three capital projects we are asking for support on this year that will enable us to better serve the homeless of Dallas.”
During the COVID pandemic, UGM Dallas housed the homeless 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The extra usage on facilities generated the need for renovations to the bathroom facilities at Calvert Men’s Shelter. UGM Dallas is also purchasing and installing StepUP modular beds to offer therapeutic support to Veterans, the disabled and elderly who need a reprieve from the cold, hard streets. Furthermore, UGM Dallas is remodeling the cosmetology area to provide women from the Center of Hope Women & Children’s Shelter with makeovers as they enter the workplace, ongoing haircuts and styling for kids, and employable skills that will enable them to provide for themselves and their children. Click to Watch Video
