CitySquare Featured in Huffington Post!

CitySquare is proud to be featured in Huffington Post's Giving Back post on how the religious community is making a difference in the lives of strugging families...

"HuffPost Religion is proud to feature the work of CitySquare (Formerly Central Dallas Ministries) as part of the launch of Huffington Post Media Group. Driven by its commitment to the Christian Gospel of good news for the poor, CitySquare serves struggling families. CitySquare exists to fight the root causes of poverty by partnering with those in need. Working together as a community, they feed the hungry, heal the sick, house the homeless and renew hope in the heart of Dallas. CitySquare is a community of neighbors, investing in each other and developing meaningful relationships that value each individual. CitySquare's work flows out of their faith, and that faith is inclusive and ecumenical. CitySquare stands for justice and demand equity for all its neighbors. CitySquare's resources belong to the community and as stewards of those resources they act with integrity, demonstrate accountability and operate efficiently and effectively."

"In its effort to help struggling families, last year CitySquare administered $1,000,000 of American Recovery funds to help keep families housed. The efforts of CitySquare reached over 70,000 people through 16 social service programs including providing food to more than 35,000 families; providing medical care to more than 2,000 uninsured neighbors and providing permanent homes to more than 350 neighbors each year."
