Mission Statement

To fight the causes and effects of poverty through service, advocacy, and friendship.

Description

Since 1988, CitySquare has addressed the causes and effects of poverty by working together with the people we serve, known to us as neighbors. CitySquare fights poverty through service, advocacy and friendship, with 14 unique programs that address hunger, health, housing, and hope-benefitting at-risk youth, working poor families, and the homeless. According to Charity Navigator (http://www.charitynavigator.org), 88.6% of our total expenses are spent on the programs and services we deliver. Originally started as the Central Dallas Food Pantry, CitySquare has grown to be one of the largest, most effective social services organizations in Texas, serving more than 50,000 unduplicated neighbors each year and branching out to serve the urban poor across Texas, and now in Denver.

We operate out of our Denver Community Center at 2575 S. Broadway. The food pantry, clothing bank, and referral services are currently open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Tuesday and Wednesday. Neighbors can use a computer, and we offer our mailing address, to collect mail for those who don’t have one. We give out free bus passes, and offer hot showers and clean restrooms. On Thursday afternoons from 1 p.m. to at least 3 p.m., we open up to support the Stout Street Clinic’s Mobile Medical Van, which parks out front, but only for limited service (no food pantry distributions) of water, coffee, rest, and restrooms.
