Thanks to you, CitySquare is a force for good. CitySquare provides solutions for housing, food, and health services, touching the lives of more than 50,000 people each year. 

More than 300,000 people live in poverty in Dallas. CitySquare's mission is to change that. 

  • On any given day in Dallas, about 4,500 individuals experience homelessness or housing instability. As one of the largest public housing facilitators in North Texas, last year we housed or provided supportive services to 500 neighbors. 
  • Our grocery store-style pantry welcomes about 14,000 unique visitors a year, who access 2.7 million pounds of nutritious food. 
  • We know the connection between health, housing, and food is paramount to breaking the cycle of poverty. Our outreach staff provides education on health access and insurance, as well as the importance of having a primary care doctor to 12,000 neighbors each year. 

Because of the generosity of our supporters, donors, and 3,000 volunteers, we are able to alleviate food insecurity, promote health equity, and provide housing for our community's most vulnerable.
