The Stewpot offers a safe haven for homeless and at-risk individuals of Dallas, providing resources for basic survival needs as well as opportunities to start a new life! The Stewpot began serving food in 1975 when First Presbyterian Church members realized no other resources were available for the homeless and hungry. Since 2008, The Stewpot has been the sole meal provider at The Bridge (Dallas’ homeless assistance center), serving 1,500-2,000 meals per day, 7 days per week. Other services provided by the Stewpot include: case management, health care, and substance abuse assistance; youth programs; job training; rep payee; referral for employment, housing and other benefits; access to mailing address and voice mail. Creative and social activities include art classes, community concerts, and talent shows. The Stewpot has a volunteer base of over 2,000 volunteers.
