Welcome to The Stewpot

We're Glad You're Here!

Whether you are in need of assistance - help getting legal ID, a hot meal, accessing health care, learning how to get housed, receiving mail, getting groceries to feed your family, enrolling your kids in educational programs, or exploring your artistic side - or want to offer assistance by making a financial gift or sharing your time and talents as a volunteer - we're excited to welcome you to The Stewpot community.

The Stewpot provides all of these services in the heart of Dallas so that people can take their next steps towards stability and independence.
