The calamities of homelessness and domestic violence are not new. Many are those suffer due to a lack of adequate resources in the face of crisis. People without shelter – either in the physical sense, or as a safe haven – are particularly vulnerable to physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual sufferings that degrade the human experience, lead to critical health and mental crises, invoke despair and isolation, and can even cause death. 

Over 4,500 people in the City of Dallas do not have a place to sleep each night. 

1 in 3 women are living with an abusive partner. And every nine seconds, a woman is assaulted.

Shelter Ministries of Dallas (SMD), with a mission to shelter the homeless and victims of domestic violence and to provide compassionate counseling through a ministry of caring, is steadfast in its commitment to serving people who are living homeless or living with an abuser. As our city is faced with escalating incidences of homelessness and domestic violence, we need your support to build hope across our city and activate a culture of compassion for people experiencing the misfortunes of homelessness and the terror of domestic violence. With your support we can better address and resolve these circumstances, enhance our continuum of care to exceed all expectations, and above all, engender the restoration of human dignity for people in great need.
