In 2014, over 44% of our funding came from special events.
Since opening its doors, the Dallas House has served more than 36,000 families. Although families are asked to contribute $15 per family per night, no one has ever been turned away because of an inability to pay. The actual cost per night to house a family is approximately $125— a cost largely covered by individual and corporate donors, community organizations, and special events. In 2014, the highest percentage of funds came from our special events.
Whether it’s the Trains at NorthPark, our annual Young Friends Party or our Under the Moonlight gala, with supporters like you we continue to find ways to continue to serve as a “home-away-from-home” for families when they need us most.
