Dallas Bike Ride

In 2017 the first closed-road, car-free bike ride in Dallas was held and raised money to help fund a bike program at Incarnation House, as well as providing the students with their own bikes! This event now occurs each November and continues to raise money for the students of Incarnation House.

Leadership Retreat

During the Fall semester of each school year, we take the students on a weekend-long leadership retreat where we push comfort zones, engage in teambuilding exercises, and develop leadership skills. This is truly a unique experience for all of our kids, many of which, have never left the city of Dallas. Each year we are in need of extra sleeping bags and pillows.

IH Student Christmas

We know that many of our students at Incarnation House will not have the opportunity to open up gifts during the holidays. Each December, during the last week of school, we have a Christmas party! We have never seen the students smile, laugh, and be so filled with joy than they are during our Christmas party. Please consider adopting a student! We are also in need of volunteers to bake cookies!!

In a state with the 6th highest rate of children living in poverty, Dallas County has the highest rate in the state with 29% of its youth living below the poverty line and many of them are experiencing persistent childhood poverty in which they will live under the poverty line for at least half of their childhood. As rent and housing prices continue to rise in Dallas, it is becoming ever more difficult for the 79% of the 84,039 extremely low-income households that pay more than half of their income to housing.

Living situations vary from motels, shelters, doubling and tripling up, to Section 8 and HUD housing, but for all of these families housing insecurity is cause for much stress and concern. Many of these families are one paycheck, sickness, or accident away from being on the street and often times fall through the cracks due to a lack of being identified. Incarnation House offers a safe place for the youth of these families to come after school, build relationships with caring adults and peers, and have access to services they otherwise would not, in hopes of providing a pathway out of poverty.
