We're excited to share some incredible news! Weidner Apartment Homes has given Homeward Bound, Inc. the most heartwarming Thanksgiving gift ever! πŸ¦ƒ

πŸ‘ Over 100 amazing Weidner employee volunteers dedicated their time to make a difference at our treatment facility on University Hills Boulevard. Their impact is beyond words!

They painted, repaired, and even built a gazebo. 🌳 The team cleared land with a vision for a future park for our clients, planted over a dozen bushes, and prepared raised beds for winter planting of herbs and cold-weather veggies.

Not stopping there, they moved logs, fixed a walk-in cooler that's been out of commission for years, and worked tirelessly to make everything seem effortless.

Thank you to Weidner Apartment Homes for their generosity and hardworking volunteers! Special gratitude to the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas for connecting us. Together, we're making a positive impact! πŸ’™

Dive into the impactful work of Homeward Bound!

Our Executive Director, Douglas W. Denton, took the stage at this fall's annual Judicial Summit on Mental Health in Galveston to spotlight the incredible strides made by the Dallas County Deflection Center.

πŸ‘‰ The Deflection Center, operated by Homeward Bound, is a lifeline for mentally ill or impaired, often homeless offenders facing Criminal Trespass charges. Previously bound for jail, law enforcement officers can now opt for a more compassionate route by bringing them to Homeward Bound.

πŸ’™ Here, individuals receive a thorough assessment, access to showers, a cozy bed, and a nourishing meal. In collaboration with Parkland Hospital and the North Texas Behavioral Health Authority, we offer comprehensive physical and mental health assessments, treatment placement, and a supportive handoff to housing or family reunification.

πŸ“Š The numbers tell a powerful storyβ€”serving 301 clients in its first year, the Deflection Center is on track to support over 400 individuals this year.

Together, we're cultivating positive change and transforming lives πŸ’™

Big Clean-Up News

Meet Sophia Garcia and her dedicated team! They used to spend endless hours washing and drying bedding and towels for Homeward Bound's residential clients. Our old machines were a real struggle – they'd break down, and parts were complex to come by. But here's the exciting update:

Thanks to the incredible support from the North Texas Behavioral Health Authority, along with the generous contributions of Bob Gotovac and the Single Spirit Sunday school class at First Baptist Church Dallas, we now have brand-new, health-care-grade, large load washers and dryers!

With these two new washers and three new dryers for general laundry, we're now meeting CDC standards for residential health facilities. What's even better? We still have enough funds to purchase new laundry equipment for the treatment units where clients launder their clothing.

Together, we're positively impacting the lives of those we serve!

Homeward Bound is thrilled to announce that our long-time partners at Holmes Murphy & Associates have donated $4,200 this month!

Lumme, Senior Service Consultant, and Elsa Dunson, Senior Benefits Coordinator. They presented a heartfelt check and engaged in an inspiring conversation with Jeff Fuller, Homeward Bound Associate Director, Doug Denton, Executive Director, and Christine Wicker, Director of Development.

But there's more to this heartwarming story! The meeting also revolved around exciting opportunities for the 150 employees at their Dallas office to get involved and impact our community.

Meet Lindsey and Mychellete, two inspiring AmeriCorps volunteers dedicating their time and energy to Homeward Bound Inc. as Resource Navigators for clients struggling with Substance Use Disorders (SUD). As pioneers of this groundbreaking pilot program, Lindsey and Mychellete are committed to delivering innovative and client-centered support, aiming to create a lasting legacy at HBI.

Bound by their passion for mental health, Lindsey and Mychellete have both faced their own unique challenges in life, propelling them to use their experiences to help others in need. Their resilience and determination serve as shining examples of the transformative power of empathy and compassion.

Through their work as Resource Navigators, Lindsey and Mychellete are not only providing support to clients, but also striving to enact meaningful change within the mental health community. Their unwavering dedication to making a difference is an inspiration to us all and a testament to the powerful impact that passionate individuals can have on the lives of others.

This incredible partnership between Lindsey, Mychellete, and HBI was made possible thanks to the generous support of Equal Heart, a partner organization of AmeriCorps that hosts sites like HBI. Equal Heart's commitment to fostering change and empowering volunteers has helped bring this inspiring duo to our community.

Join us in celebrating Lindsey and Mychellete as they embark on their journey to make an indelible impact at Homeward Bound Inc. and beyond, fostering hope, healing, and the belief that a brighter future is possible for those struggling with SUD.

Richard. Betsy. Marque. Just 3 of the 2.2 million people in Texas who face a substance use disorder. This recovery month, we strive to put faces, names, and stories to the people constantly looked at as a number. Our incredible staff spends 24/7, 365 days a year instilling a sense of worth back into our clients and being reminded that we care. To anyone out there today who is scared of their addiction or a survivor of addiction, please reach out to us so we can send our support to you. Thank you to everyone who shared their stories last night to end National Recovery Month and know that our services do not stop in September. Visit us at www.HBIncTX.org for help.

Degie Jones has faced addiction since she was 11 years old. She’s been to prison. She’s been to treatment centers. But no one cared enough to give her the kind of help she needed. Until Homeward Bound.

Homeward Bound gives people like Degie Jones the chance to help transform the lives of suffering people. Second chances work.

Helping people transform themselves is what we do. And we can't do that without you.

We have already almost hit our goal for NTX Giving Day and it is only noon. Will you help us hit $10,000 by midnight? Donate here: https://www.northtexasgivingday.org/organization/Hbinctx
