It’s My City

That’s how we feel about Dallas, because it’s our city—a place we love and take pride in. That’s why we’re willing to invest in our city and in our neighbors.

When you have something that you love and take pride in it’s easy to invest time, money, and energy. It’s something you are passionate about, care for, and want to see become something even greater. That’s how we feel about Dallas, because it’s our city—a place we love and take pride in. That’s why we’re willing to invest in our city and in our neighbors.

Dallas, one of the richest cities in the country, is also one of the poorest. A tale of two cities. Every day, one in four children goes to bed with an empty stomach. Nearly 40% of Dallas residents live in asset poverty. Ten percent of the population survives on roughly $11,000 annually to support a family of four. These numbers will only continue to rise unless we intervene. The bottom line is this: Dallas needs to stop the cycle of poverty now. Together with our city, community partners, and you, CitySquare is fighting for those who have so little.

More than 50,000 neighbors benefited from services provided by CitySquare this year alone. These neighbors received food when they were hungry, housing when they were homeless, health care when they were sick, and hope when there was none. Unfortunately, the number of broken, troubled, and weary neighbors in need continues to grow.

At CitySquare, we love our neighbors. We love our city. We are willing to invest the time and money to make the lives of our neighbors better and our city more prosperous. Please join CitySquare in our fight to combat poverty by making a gift today. Let’s change the story of Dallas from a tale of two cities to a city where every individual has the opportunity to build a bright future.
