As the holiday season approaches, so does the time of giving. Here at Sue Krider Realty, we believe it’s vital to give back to your community when you can. This year, Allie Beth Allman & Associates is once again hosting the Give Where You Live campaign, a charity drive that focuses on giving back to the Dallas area.
We’re excited to announce that our our featured charity this year is the Incarnation House! For more details on what the charity is and how to give, check out the helpful information below.
What is the Give Where You Live Campaign?
Allie Beth and Pierce Allman have always believed in giving back to the community. The husband and wife realty duo are the founders of Allie Beth Allman & Associates realty group and are personally involved in a long list of charities.
For the second year in a row, the Allman’s are getting involved by sponsoring the inaugural “D Gives” Initiative, an online fundraising campaign that aims to raise awareness and donations for local Dallas charities.
In addition to all of the money raised from contributions, the top three non-profits that raise the most funds will get additional prize money for their cause. As a member of Allie Beth Allman & Associates, I’m excited to be participating in the Give Where You Live campaign this year with the Incarnation House charity.
What Does the Incarnation House Do?
Did you know that Dallas has the highest rate of children living in poverty in the state, with 29% of the youth living below the poverty line? Additionally, 79% of the low-income households have to use more than half of their income just to afford basic housing.
Incarnation House’s primary mission is to work with homeless and housing-insecure youth and provide them with important access to education, emotional, and other support services. By doing so, they hope to increase the success of these at-risk youths later in life.
Primarily working with the students of North Dallas High, organization aims to address the issues caused by generational poverty and alleviate some of the stresses it causes in the lives of students. Many students come to the center after school for help with homework, local internships, and hot meals. Plus, once a month the center even offers preventative healthcare access.
Since the center opened its doors in 2016, they’ve served almost 200 students every year, provided over 2,000 meals every year, and has aided dozens of students in the college admissions process. Through the services they offer and the time they donate, the Incarnation House does vital work in the Dallas community.
