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.

discipleship ministry for the homeless OurCalling is a discipleship ministry for the homeless. We are a 501c3 non profit that serves the unsheltered homeless community throughout Dallas County.

We filled almost 5,000 volunteer positions in 2014 and serve 365 days each year.

Our primary focus is evangelism and discipleship among the poorest people in Dallas county. We don't bus people to church, we bring the church to them. We serve in over 100 locations including over 90 homeless camps, shelters, coffee shops and apartment complexes.

OurCalling officially began 12 years ago with our founders leading volunteers to the street to minister to the homeless community. Since then, we have grown to a movement of volunteers, partners, and staff who link arms to find long term solutions for our homeless neighbors.

We are always asking two questions: “Will you trust Jesus with your life?” and “Will you let us help you off the street?”

Our hope is to point people to Jesus and provide help during any time of need.

We are so thankful for Dak Prescott and his foundation Faith Fight Finish and their heart for the community of Dallas. Tuesday we had an incredible opportunity to partner together and have a block party to host our homeless friends, the local youth from j.k. livin foundation program at Carter High School and Promise House. Thank you Dak for providing much needed meals from Walk-On's Sports Bistreaux, for your time and the joy you brought to so many people! This is just the beginning - #BetterTogether.💚

“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

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! 💚

This is the news we needed after a long hard 10 days of providing emergency inclement weather shelter for the Dallas homeless community, our staff, volunteers and partners were exhausted. 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.

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.
