The Many Helping Hands Day Center is the only day center in Irving that provides services for homeless individuals and some families. The center is open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10am till 2pm and stays open till 5pm on inclement weather days. We currently serve an average of 30+ people per day. We transport from one designated pick-up place in South Irving, or our clients walk to the facility. 

Day Center - YTD #'s as of 8/31/23 - Clients served 484 Individuals.        876 loads of laundry, 1410 Showers, 2509 Meals served, 1541 Clients. 

Thursday Night Dinner - YTD #'s - 2867 Meals served, 1575 Clients served, 142 Clients seen by Doctor on Parkland Bus.

Many Helping Hands receives no government funding and relies 100% on community support to keep our programs going.  Please consider a donation in support of our programs.  

Many Helping Hands has been serving the Irving homeless population in South Irving, since June 2013 (10 years).  We have not missed a Thursday night dinner, even Holiday's and during COVID.  

Last year we expanded our services and opened a Day center in July 2022.  This was a long-time vision for Irving and is a dream come true.  We are excited to have a safe cool/warm place for our friends without homes to go.  We provide a cooling/heating station, showers, laundry facilities, hygiene, underwear, socks, clothing, Bible studies and a hot lunch. We soon hope to have case management, counseling, support groups (AA, NA, etc.), job placement, housing opportunities and identify any other specific needs we can provide. Our clothing closet provides shoes or clothes for a job interview or new job.  In addition, a new coat in the winter, rain poncho or new sleeping bag or blanket to replace the one that weathered. Everything is closely monitored at both locations, to ensure no one takes advantage of the system.

 It is important to note that 99% of the staff to support our programs are volunteers from the community.

Each week at our Thursday night meal, 20+ volunteers work together to provide a hot meal and meet special needs for our clients. We have free healthcare on the Parkland bus, and provide bus passes to get needed prescriptions etc. Every other week we set up a clothing closet for those who can't get to the Day center for needed items.  Each week we serve 85+ people a hot meal on Thursday evening. Everything we do on Thursdays, is portable, and we set up and tear down each week. Each week we provide food, underwear, socks, hygiene and love. We have a small administrative office that is used for an address for grant applications and to help our clients obtain personal documents and ID's needed to apply for jobs.

Exciting news:  We have the plans drawn up for expansion of the Day Center as we are outgrowing our current space. We have a building fund set aside for finishing out our new space.  If you would like to donate to that specific fund, please make note of that on your donation.

Serving our Community by providing:



Spiritual Support

Educational Resources






Our biggest need is an additional van or bus to transport our clients to and from the Day Center. In addition, please help us continue to provide transportation, additional resources, bus passes for appointments, transportation to Jobs, hygiene, backpacks, tents, sunscreen, bug spray, basic needs and to help us grow our day center. We are always in need of tennis shoes, men's jeans and other clothing items. The money will also be used to provide warm clothes in the winter and to help secure legal IDs to the those that do not have a form of ID.

Although we have amazing support of in-kind gifts, we do at times need to purchase cleaning supplies, laundry soap, food, paper plates, paper towels, cases of water etc.

Our goal for next year is to have an expanded Day center to increase our services to the growing homeless population. We have the plans drawn up for expansion of the Day Center as we are outgrowing our current space. We have a building fund set aside for finishing out our new space. If you would like to donate to that specific fund, please make note of that on your donation.
