Dallas is a thriving city with much to offer; however, Dallas also has the one of the highest child poverty rates in the country among cities with more than 1 million people. 30% of Dallas children grow up in poverty, or two of every five children. That means 3,000 kids are currently experiencing homelessness. Vogel Alcove is devoted to helping these children cope with the physical, emotional, and mental trauma they are experiencing so that they might succeed in life despite their circumstances. Day 1 Dallas is an event that benefits Vogel Alcove and is a great way to give back to the community, especially during the holidays and the New Year.
Homeless children are the most invisible and neglected members of our community.
It’s the season for giving and this is a wonderful way to participate.
