What We Do

Although our students attend school in a wealthy area, their lives are riddled with gaps in services, opportunities, health care, and education. Incarnation House acts as a hub for local organizations and non-profits to fill those gaps. By partnering with 20+ organizations, our students are receiving services they otherwise would not have access to. We focus on 4 areas: Education, Health and Wellness, Vocational Support, and Enrichment Activities. Through safe, lasting relationships with supportive adults and peers, the family atmosphere of Incarnation House has created a culture where students are allowed to explore, learn, try new things, and grow to be their best self.

Education

We believe that education is one of the most powerful tools we have to combat generational poverty and homelessness. Incarnation House staff stay in constant communication with North Dallas High School, as well as providing students with: individual tutors, extra math support through Mathnasium, tours of local colleges and universities, and mentors to assist with the college application process. Students raise their expectations of themselves and with our help, they learn the skills needed to achieve these expectations.

Health and Wellness

For families living in extreme poverty, health takes a backseat. Because of the limited access our families have, many health issues are not addressed until it becomes a serious problem that warrants an emergency room visit. With partners like Parkland Hospital, Incarnation House youth and families have access to preventative healthcare once a month. In addition to health care access, Ntarupt works with our youth to bring sex/pregnancy prevention education.

The mental health of our students is just as important as their physical well-being, so we work to bring programs that promote awareness and tools to help improve the entire well-being of the students.

Vocational Support

Rather than focusing solely on college, the focus of Incarnation House is to assist our students in acquiring living wage jobs through which they can support a family. For some of our students, this path will include college, junior college, trade school, or the military. Our partners work with our students by taking them on college tours, touring local businesses, learning about different careers, and providing students with internships in their area of interest.

Enrichment

Our students live and go to school right across the street from museums, sports venues, zoos, music centers, and so much more and yet, they are unable to take advantage of so much of the culture that Dallas has to offer. Part of the Incarnation House program is taking the students to experience as much of Dallas as possible.

Partners / Community Supporters

Incarnation House partners with more than 20 organization to utilize existing and proven programs to provide the services needed to fill the identified opportunity gaps for our students and offset cost wherever possible.
