An awesome ministry to our homeless friends!
As a OC volunteer I was truly moved spiritually after working alongside the team at Our Calling for the past week at the Convention Center. The work and compassion of Pastor Wayne and Carolyn, the Care Ministers, and entire staff of OC was truly Christ like. I'm positive our God is looking down and smiling... You guys did good.
What about opening a branch in San Antonio? Left a VM with my info.

“Your community is everything. It’s your support system,” Prescott said. “That’s the people that pick you up when you’re down, help you get through adversity, and I think there’s no better place than right here that just exemplifies that. People that obviously have had hardships in their life, and OurCalling does an amazing job of lending their hand out. Just to join hands with them and present my services and support, let everyone know here, I support them. ... They can always count on me to do my part in making this community better.” - Dak Prescott

TEAM HUDDLE— We believe here at OurCalling that our first step in all we do must always begin with prayer. Before every outreach we make sure to go to God on behalf of our city and the people.

The number of people experiencing homelessness in Dallas is growing at a faster rate than ever before. Our poverty rate is one of the fastest growing in the nation, and affordable housing has become extinct. We are committed to doing all that we can during this time to provide resources and necessities to our homeless friends.

Did you know that our facility is equipped with on site laundry services? We are able to provide up to 10,000 loads of laundry per year for our homeless friends. Washing and drying laundry takes three hours, which gives our Care Ministers plenty of time to sit and build relationships with our homeless friends while they wait on their clothes to be cleaned. We do everything with intentionality at OurCalling! 💚

We are encouraged and ready to continue this good work. It’s partnerships and generosity like this that allows OurCalling to be such a great resource for our city.

This has been our reality for the last 7 days. We may have tired eyes but extremely full hearts. There is only 48 hours left with all of our homeless friends in this building. We are currently working on an exit strategy to offer the most support for every single one of them moving forward into next week. We appreciate your ongoing prayer and contributions.

Introducing the new OurCalling housing model…

|| OurCommunity ||

For over a decade, OurCalling has been serving our most vulnerable neighbors, the unsheltered homeless population. Now we look to change how they have been identified – from “unsheltered homeless population” to “neighbor”.

We are proud to announce that we have launched a $12,600,000 capital campaign geared towards purchasing and rehabbing a facility that we will transform into housing for the city’s most vulnerable men and women.

This housing facility, which will be located in Dallas, will be modeled after an assisted-living center with a wealth of wrap-around services available to its residents. These services include a full food service, medical and mental health treatment, counseling, job training, discipleship, and a community planner to ensure a fun and engaging environment for all our previously homeless residents to enjoy.

We began dreaming about this housing plan years ago. It has been in the heart and vision of our Founder, Pastor Wayne Walker. This housing plan is designed to give its residents more than just a space to live. It is a place to become healthy, and to grow in community; it is a place to relax and to play, to connect with vital physical health resources, and a place to experience and grow in faith.

When we turn the first key, and our first resident walks through the door, we envision that we will hear a deep exhale of relief as they enter into their forever home.

Dak Prescott, McConaughey Offer Aid To DFW Homeless Weather Shelter

si.com As a result of the dangerous winter weather in Texas, homeless shelters and non-profits are working overtime trying to offer help to citizens.

What is your calling?

There are thousands of individuals experiencing homelessness in Dallas. Most aren't in shelters, are over 40 years old, and suffer trauma and abuse beyond your worst nightmares. They need more than food, clothes, shelter, housing and a job. They need love, acceptance, and a healthy community to embrace them. They need to be listened to, learned from, and engaged. They need a place to escape the weather, a friend to laugh with, and a family to accept them.

OurCalling is a grass roots movement in Dallas. We are called to lead people to Christ and make disciples on the streets. We value dignity, innovation, wholeness, collaboration, and above all - the Gospel. We help people survive and recovery from the a life on the streets. We also partner with lots of different agencies that work together to break the cycle of homelessness.

As a Christian organization, we don't bus people to church. We bring the church to them. All of our faith based programs are voluntary, and we show the love of Christ to everyone we meet. We visit over 1,000 locations throughout Dallas, and operate an outreach center in Downtown Dallas. We are joined by corporations, businesses, churches and utilize thousands of volunteers each year.
