We are so excited to welcome Giving Hope, Inc. to the Serve Denton Center as our newest nonprofit partner! Serve Denton currently partners with Giving Hope, Inc. at The Wheeler House where their organization manages the transitional housing facility for moms and their kids. Since 2015, more than 100 mom and kids have transitioned out of a housing crisis into permanent housing because of this program.
We decided to interview one of our partner agencies, Youth & Family Counseling, to learn a little bit more about their services! Did you know mental health is the #1 need for children in Denton County? This is a big reason why they decided to open a second location in Northern Denton County, right here at Serve Denton!
There are over 109,000 Denton County residents who are food insecure. That is why Denton has established Mayor’s Day of Concern for the Hungry, an annual food drive to support the food pantries in Denton, TX. Mayor Chris Watts, the Denton Hunger Coalition and Serve Denton encourage you to donate non-perishable food items from April 18-22 or cash to support our community and help feed the hungry. Learn more about the event and the food insecure in this podcast with Mayor Chris Watts!
