Promise House

The Promise House mission began in 1984 after the Lovers Lane United Methodist Church conducted a community needs survey. Their research uncovered an enormous lack of community support for homeless and runaway youth. To fill this unmet need, the church purchased a large house located 15 minutes away from downtown Dallas and converted it into a 16-bed emergency shelter.

Today, Promise House operates as an independent 501(c)(3) organization. Since its founding, Promise House has dramatically expanded programming to include crisis intervention, transitional housing, pregnant and parenting teen services, counseling, education and outreach to neglected, abused, and at-risk youth ages 0-24. Since 1984, Promise House has had an open door – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year – to children, youth and families in crisis. By improving each client’s chances for long-term stability, Promise House works to prevent chronic homelessness in North Texas.
