UPCOMING EVENTS

Unite is bringing vetted, local, real-time needs of the most vulnerable families and children to Dallas County churches!

  • Tornado recovery and child welfare caseworkers (and eventually local school leaders) are trained to submit high-impact, real-time needs that would protect and strengthen the children and families they serve

  • These requested items and services (often beds, car seats and other basic items and services) help prevent kids from entering the foster care system and assist to reunify kids with their biological families

  • The closest churches to the family are notified with an email and an opportunity to respond and meet the need in a variety of ways, allowing for direct relationships to be formed with the family and with the worker who entered the need.

 

This meeting gives church and ministry leaders a chance to come see the CarePortal platform, how to use it and activate a FREE ACCOUNT through Unite's network!

A Night to End Youth Homelessness: A CityHouse production of "Lost in America"

Nov. 16, 2019

Register: HERE

Trailer: HERE

 

Back in early 2017, we wrote on our old blog: "Every now and then, you come across a film so thoughtful, so compelling, so moving, that you become an evangelist for an issue... Lost in America... might be one of those films."

 

This is why back then we were excited to join CityHouse in hosting an exclusive fundraising and awareness event to see the film, and hear from its director and producer, Rotimi Rainwater, here in Dallas, as it made the film festival rounds.   

 

With the long-awaited theatrical release next month, Rotimi is holding a nationwide event, A Night to End Youth Homelessness, with interactive showings of the film across the country. Our good friends at CitySquare TRAC and After8toEducate will be participating, and screening the film here in Dallas. Stay tuned for all the details, over the next few days!
