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.
Serve Denton and Giving Hope, Inc.’s partnership at The Wheeler House has been extremely successful, which is why our organization is thrilled to have Giving Hope, Inc. open a satellite office at the Serve Denton Center.
Who is Giving Hope, Inc.?
Giving Hope, Inc. serves individuals and families experiencing or at-risk of homelessness in Denton County. Since 1986, their housing assistance programs have helped thousands of our neighbors reach stability and become self-sufficient.
Through collaboration with community partners, their staff performs…
One of the ways Giving Hope, Inc. carries out its mission is by providing rental and utility assistance for eligible participants, with specific programs for persons with disabilities and veterans.
The goal of this program is to reduce recidivism (the tendency of a convicted criminal to reoffend) for people experiencing homelessness who have a mental health diagnosis or condition.
Kiandra Daniels, case manager, will be the staff person on site who will oversee this program. She will spend the majority of her week at the Serve Denton Center where she will meet with clients and facilitate two support groups.
Giving Hope, Inc. Executive Director Tyheshia Scott said their organization is so excited to partner at the Serve Denton Center because without this space, there would be no program.
Two New Support Groups
Kiandra will also be heading up two new support groups at the Serve Denton Center: What’s Next? and Homeless Recovery.
The What’s Next? group will meet every other week during the day with individuals who are transitioning from homelessness to being housed. The group will be a safe space for participants to talk about the transition. They will also teach life skills that will help participants live a fuller life. Anyone who is transitioning out of homelessness is welcome to join the group.
The Homeless Recovery group will also meet every other week during the day (classes will alternate weeks). This is a closed group that is designed to help those who are homeless deal with the trauma they have experienced in their life.
Will Giving Hope, Inc. accept walk-ins?
Yes, Kiandra, the on-site case manager, is trained in coordinated entry, which means she will be able to assess people experiencing homelessness and help these individuals get started and suited for a program through Giving Hope, Inc.
Serve Denton wants to give a big welcome to Giving Hope, Inc. We are so excited to have you on the team! For more information about Giving Hope, Inc., visit their website by clicking the button below.
