Promise House moves youth in crisis toward safety and success, leading the charge to end youth homelessness in North Texas. Its free programs include life-saving emergency shelter, transitional housing, pregnant and parenting teen support, counseling, education, and outreach services.
Groups of people can get involved by volunteering with the youth — hosting pizza nights, game nights, or other engaging activities.
Promise House hosts two signature events each year: the Golf Class and the Sleep Out.
Each spring, Promise House hosts a golf tournament to raise much-needed funds for the youth they serve. The Golf Classic provides an important opportunity for corporations, small businesses, and individuals to support its mission, and is a day full of fun and community collaboration as the supporters spend time together, enjoying a round of golf and engaging with the group's mission.
For the Sleep Out, community leaders are invited each fall to sleep outside at Promise House with only cardboard and a sleeping bag. Each sleeper commits to raising at least $5,000 through their social network — increasing both awareness and funds for the homeless youth they serve. While this could never replicate the experience of a young person on the streets, the event does provide participants a chance to learn, firsthand, about some of the challenges they face.
