Together with our efforts and your involvement, we can reach out and touch people of all walks of life who are experiencing a difficult time in their lives.
We offer various services that meet the needs of a changing community. We hope you will join us in this important work. Because safe, caring communities begin with caring people.
Helping the Homeless
Circle of Good started serving food to the homeless and then creating several groups to serve together. There is a shelter right here across from Parkland hospital in downtown Dallas that we partnered with. They can house up to 900 people from all walks of life each night.
We started forming groups of people to serve from Nextdoor.com and just grew & grew. Within those groups, other people started forming groups to serve the homeless as well. There are 365 opportunities 3 times each day available for serving our community.
We also started doing clothes drives, coat drives, glove and hat drives, and then shoe drives. We have even started and supported a group that makes hats for people with cancer.
I started peanut butter and jelly sandwich making parties, and that has grown significantly. We would love to have you be part of out team.

Serving Our Veterans
We serve Veterans who have hit rock bottom and who had to go through a rehabilitation program. Most Veterans who experienced a war zone, have trouble returning to civilian life. They go through 2-year programs where they are able to get back on their feet.
We provide “Welcome Home Kits”, (think college kid, first apartment)
Typically, the “Welcome Home Kits” contain trash bags, laundry detergent, a set of towels, dish washing detergent. A set of dishes, and silverware. We like to add sheets, & blankets, if our budget allows.
We feel like it is the least we can do. After all, they fought for our freedom by risking their lives.
Cards of Hope
We have homemade cards made by children in our community. The cards have different themes. They are cards made for children with cancer, (cancer treatment centers, and hospitals) to offer comfort to all in need.
Typically, they are “Get well soon” cards. Cards are made for Veterans and the homeless living in area shelters. The cards are made for encouragement as well. The cards have phrases that say, “You can do it!”, and are decorated with upbeat and uplifting pictures of rainbows, butterflies, and flowers.
Cards are also made for people in nursing homes of which only 60% receive visitors. These cards read inspiration such as “Thinking of you”, or “Get well soon”. The people that receive the cards are thrilled to receive them because sadly they are forgotten.
Veterans and the homeless look forward to uplifting messages as well and keep the cards for inspiration. They too are forgotten.
We educate the community on domestic violence. We have partnered with the Salvation Army. We offer an educational seminar with a free lunch to victims of domestic violence. We want people to be educated on how to handle different experiences. If you or someone you know is going through a domestic crisis, contact us immediately.
We offer resources to the general public because most times people do not know where to go, or how to handle those situations. Our main objective is to help them get out of the situation that they are in. Especially when children are involved. No one deserves that treatment.
Domestic Violence Survivors
We provide baby items to the domestic violence survivors; Cribs, strollers, car seats, baby clothes, baby bottles, and more.
We were forever changed when we witnessed a woman with no shoes on, 4 kids in tow, & pregnant with her 5th child. She showed up with the clothes on her back at the Salvation Army. At that time we were dropping off shoes for 68 kids that were in the shelter that Sunday night. We had just completed a shoe drive throughout our neighborhood with many individuals lending a helping hand in the effort. We were so proud of our accomplishment, but we learned that there were more hurting people in this world.
