Newly Housed Program
TCT, Tarrant County Homeless Coalition and the City of Fort Worth is partnering to better serve our newly housed neighbors. There are many needs when transitioning into permanent housing, and our partnership is focused on eliminating those barriers. If you or your congregation would like to get involved, email Rhonda Yearby.
Clean for Quarters
Clean clothes and linens are a basic necessity of life. They provide individuals with a sense of self-worth and dignity and allow them to present themselves in a favorable light when applying for jobs. Clean for Quarters is a simple thing you can do to lift the life of individuals or families moving off the street. Collect your extra quarters and, at the end of the month, send them to TCT! We'll get them to case managers at the Fort Worth Housing Authority where they will be distributed to residents for use at laundromats!
Blessings In a Backpack
The Blessings In A Back Pack Childhood Breakfast Project is a program where children receive one month’s worth of healthy breakfast items in a re-usable bag, along with a nutritional handout or recipe. The breakfast bags are delivered to sites in low-income areas serving families with children that are near and around our 100 partners.
