"I thought I'd die on the street. Now I won't let you down."


-Danny, housed by the DRC

after more than 10 years living homeless


Bring the homeless home September 22
You can with a North Texas Giving Day gift that says you support DRC solutions that end homelessness, one individual or family at a time. 

DRC solutions are based on one simple idea: the answer to homelessness is a place to call home.
Why you should give to the DRC
We help people experiencing homelessness find housing first, then connect them to the help they'll need to succeed. It's a strategy known as Housing First, and it works.

The proof: nine out of 10 people who find housing through your support of the DRC keep their housing for at least one year, and 85% are still housed after two years. That makes a difference that saves money and lives.

North Texas Giving Day
North Texas Giving Day is a day people across North Texas come together to show their support for great local causes. Thousands of North Texas Giving Day donors give millions of dollars in online gifts each year to better their communities and the lives of people here.

How to give
Giving is easy. 
Go to www.NorthTexasGivingDay.org between 6 a.m. and midnight Thursday, September 22 only, search for DRC, and give, then ask your friends to do the same.
You'll bring people home with every gift. 

The difference your gift makes
