Mission Statement

OUR MISSION:

To provide for the physical and spiritual needs of the homeless, men, women, and children of Dallas and beyond by facilitating services and sharing the hope of salvation through Jesus Christ.

Description

Operation Care-Dallas, Inc. is a non-profit ministry that was born from a widow's grief and exists to reach the homeless in Dallas.

Since November 1993, when Susie Jennings and a group of volunteers handed out one hundred (100) blankets to the residents of the Canton Street bridge located in just south of downtown Dallas, "Operation Care - Dallas, Inc. " has been faithful to carry the message of love and hope to those in need.

From November 1993 to November 2001, this outreach ministry grew in stature, leading its Board to formally file the required documentation for the ministry to become recognized as a tax-free non-profit organization under Section 501 C (3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code. Leading up to this, Operation Care - Dallas Inc. had assisted organizations in West Africa and Southeast Asia, and provided one thousand (1,000) blankets to shelters and individuals in the Dallas area. With God's help this was accomplished without corporate sponsors or federal assistance.

Operation Care - Dallas, Inc. has grown beyond expectations that even its vision has been expanded to have at least four to five events during the calendar year. Each event generally has a theme. A theme for the spring, or the celebration of Easter is given and personal care products, blankets, Bibles and gospel tracts are distributed to individuals at shelters or on the streets.

At summer events, bottled water (labeled with the message of Hope), personal care products, Bibles and gospel tracts are distributed. Then as the season of Thanksgiving approaches, we would conduct our fourth outreach with articles of clothing and more personal care products, Bibles and gospel tracts. At this time, fliers and invitations would be given out for the forthcoming "Christmas Party" which would be the biggest event in Operation Care-Dallas's outreaches.

As we close out our calendar of events with perhaps the Nation's Largest Christmas party for those in need, we are always in need of funding for Christmas Gift celebration at the Dallas Convention Center. For the past three years thousands form lines early on a cold December morning, it is amazing to witness what our loving Father has prepared for both guests and volunteers alike. The vision God placed in Susie's heart is that Convention Centers in different cities will hold the biggest Christmas Party honoring Jesus' birthday where the homeless and the outcasts of our society will be the special guests. It would be a great time when all the cities all over the nation will be holding a Christmas Party, at the same time, for their homeless and needy people and give them hope by sharing the love of Christ. What a birthday party for the King of kings! The Bible says, "He who has pity upon the poor lends to the Lord." Proverbs 19:17
