On Saturday, August 17th, 2013 The InSource Group volunteered at the Dallas Shared Housing Center’s event School is Cool. Each year Shared Housing Center makes every effort to provide a school uniform, shoes and a back pack filled with the appropriate school supplies for school age children in the program. At the event the children and their families participate in a two-hour party of food, games and catching up before handing out the bag of supplies. The InSource Group raised money for the cause by giving employees the opportunity to donate $10 to wear flip flops or shorts on Fridays throughout the summer. With the donations The InSource Group provided 100 high school sized backpacks to the cause. The InSource Group has participated in this event for the past 10+ years.
About Shared Housing Center
Shared Housing Center was created in 1984 to provide and facilitate affordable housing options. Their mission has been to offer housing options and supportive services that foster independence, empowerment, and self-worth and to serve a multicultural, intergenerational population. Since inception, they have offered housing and services to critically at-risk populations — older adults, single parents with young children, and persons with special needs — seeking to elevate themselves from homeless and near homeless situations to lifestyles of relative self-sufficiency.
