CitySquare fights the causes and effects of poverty through service, advocacy, and friendship. From its beginning in 1988 to present day, CitySquare has grown into a broad community development organization offering a comprehensive array of social services that address four key areas related to the persistence of poverty: hunger, health, housing, and hope.

CitySquare requires a minimum of 40 volunteers a day to fight poverty in Dallas. If you are interested in getting involved, you can attend an orientation (conducted during lunch hours twice a month) or tour (once a month on Thursdays and Saturdays once a month) and fill out the application.

If you want to get started volunteering right away, you can complete the food pantry volunteer application and get right to work — no orientation required.

The group's biggest fundraiser event, A Night To Remember, happens each year in September.

Friends of CitySquare contribute a monthly donation and dedicate 15 hours per year to fighting poverty. Monthly memberships range from $5 to $200.
