Two More Charities to Vote for
At Social Pie, we believe in giving back to our community. For us, this includes the global community with our recycling, composting and water conservation efforts. It also includes our local Dallas community. If you’ve come by our pizza restaurant, you know you can vote there or online to help us choose our next charity. The winner is picked every six months and will receive a percentage of our profits in that time. So when you dine in or get pizza take out in Dallas, choosing Social Pie means you’re giving back too. We’re please to announce two more worthy charities on the voting list for our next donation.
Jonathan’s place is dedicated to providing safe, loving homes and specialized services to children who’ve been victims of abuse, abandonment or neglect. In 1994, Jonathan’s place became the first licensed foster group home for children 11 and younger, including infants. In 1999, Jonathan’s place became an emergency shelter.
Since then, Jonathan’s place needed to expand. They sadly found themselves turning away children in need due to lack of space. So, in 2002, they began an aggressive expansion project. This also enabled them to provide emergency residential care for children newborn through 17 years for up to three months.
In 2006, Jonathan’s place became lessened to place children in foster care and in 2007, they became certified to place children in adoptive homes. Finally, in 2010, they became licensed to provide high level of therapeutic care for girls age 10 – 17.
Another fabulous Dallas charity focused on families, WiNGS is dedicated to providing support for women and their families to help lift them out of poverty. It’s not about giving them money, it’s about giving them tools to create a new life.
WiNGS provides women with financial empowerment by helping they build assets. Women in the Dallas County program receive training and education about financial planning, investment and budgeting. This all increases their long-term financial stability.
At-risk young mothers receive intervention from 60+ home visits. These visits begin during pregnancy and last through the child’s second birthday. These visits gain valuable parenting skills and typically have healthier children as a result of the work of these nurses.
Women in poverty have dreams too. For those seeking to start their own business, WiNGS offers training, technical assistance, mentoring, capital, and support at their Women’s Enterprise Center.
Women who take advantage of the WiNGS programs pull themselves and their children out of poverty.
