Promise House operates as an independent 501(c)(3) organization. Since our founding, we have dramatically expanded our programming to include crisis intervention, transitional housing, pregnant and parenting teen services, counseling, education, and outreach to neglected, abused, and at-risk youth ages 0-24. Since 1984, Promise House has had an open door – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year – to children, teens and families in crisis serving approximately 1,700 youth and families annually. By improving each client’s chances for long-term stability, Promise House works to prevent chronic homelessness in North Texas.
Resource Center is a trusted leader that empowers the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer/questioning (LGBTQ) communities and all people affected by HIV through improving health and wellness, strengthening families and communities and providing transformative education and advocacy.
