Southlake Cares is an initiative from the City of Southlake created to pull our community together in support of local service organizations that assist people in times of need.
The organizations highlighted below are partners with Southlake to help the City provide services and resources to the community under contract with the City. These services include senior meals and transportation, resources for victims of family violence, or support after tragedies such as house fires. Thankfully, through the years, partnerships with these notable organizations have continued to grow and more organizations have joined to provide for those in need. In some instances, the demands on these organizations in our region have tripled, while revenue sources have declined. This means there are plenty of opportunities to help. These service organizations include:
- Alliance For Children
- Call A Ride Southlake (CARS)
- Denton County Friends of the Family
- Grapevine Relief & Community Exchange (GRACE)
- Metroport Meals on Wheels (MMOW)
- SafeHaven of Tarrant County
Alliance For Children is involved directly in the protection of children from child abuse, aiming to minimize the trauma associated with that abuse so that children and their families can begin to recover and heal.
Metroport Meals On Wheels, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that organizes volunteers to deliver hot lunches to the homes of elderly, frail, chronically ill, or home-bound individuals.
MMOW also needs volunteers to help prepare and distribute the meals, though this isn’t their primary need at this time. You can learn more about their volunteer opportunities or about MMOW on their website.
If you need this service: Most MMOW home-delivery participants are home bound. For many, the visit from a MMOW driver may be the only interaction they have with another person in a day. Receiving meals reduces isolation in addition to hunger. To apply for meals or for more information, please call Andrea Burris at (817) 491-8534 or visit the MMOW website.
