The Awareness Project is aimed at addressing serious issues we face here in the community. Hunger and homelessness are are on the rise. Our goal is to ignite a more unified community, and come together to create positive solutions through volunteer stewardship and service.

 Originally started as just a few volunteers, The Awareness Project has grown to over 700 volunteers, leading dozens of outreach projects, which include college students, seniors, veterans, local workforce community and all walks of life.   
We are serving the homeless, putting together environmental cleanups, and working with animals and seniors.
We operate Dapper Inc. Community Thrift, a unique on-stop-shop for housewares, clothing, upcycled furniture, and more. Resources available to anyone in need.
We also operate Dapper Cafe, a socially innovative pay-it-forward concept cafe, designed to reduce food insecurity in our community, and reduce waste. We serve unique coffees & teas, wholesome meals, and maintain a food pantry for anyone in need. 
-Twice a year we hold donation drives for families in need, collecting toys, warm clothing and shoes.
-Our teams put together weekly community build events, annual Earth Day celebrations, and monthly upcycling projects.
As you can see, There are many ways to volunteer at The Awareness Project. And many ways to help.
We are growing a movement of socially innovative solutions to communities within the DFW area and beyond.  Please support how you can, when you can. 


We are here to make a difference in the world, starting first in our community.

We are humanitarians, philanthropists, tree-huggers, and friends of those in need.

Equity Statement

TAP is a minority-owned business and is committed to providing its employees and volunteers with a work environment that is free of unlawful discrimination, including harassment, on the basis of any legally protected status. Everyone in the Company is responsible for assuring that our workplace is free from prohibited harassment and is expected to avoid any behavior or conduct that could reasonably be interpreted as prohibited harassment. Diversity is a guiding principle that is reflected in our ownership, board, volunteers, and clients. While many view the Hurst-Euless-Bedford area as middle to upper class areas, the demographics shared in the description of our areas affected details how this perception is not true in specific areas of these cities. Our nonprofit headquarters and shops are located where enrollment for school is 70% minority.

TAP feels it is vital to acknowledge and make adjustments to address the consequences of a long history of prejudice and discriminatory treatment that continues and has a negative impact on Black, Brown, and marginalized communities. Our socially innovative and equitable programs help kids succeed, promote cultural inclusivity among volunteers, build strong families, promote health and independence, reduce our collective footprint on the planet, and strengthen neighborhoods. We do not discriminate against anyone in need.
