Duncanville Outreach Ministry Grant and Fundraising VISTA
Duncanville Outreach Ministry (DOM), located southeast of Dallas, TX, is a non-profit organization working to reduce and alleviate hunger within the community by distributing food and financial assistance to qualified needy families in the City of Duncanville. Duncanville Outreach Ministry has been serving the families for over 30 years. What started out as a food pantry in a closet at a local United Methodist Church, has been come a resource to all the families in need. Services we have assisted with include rental assistance, utilities bill’s for water, TXU and Reliant electric bills, prescriptions, clothing, food, minor home repairs, replacement of water heaters, replacement of stoves and ac units and more as funds have allowed. DOM has had the pleasure of helping families that have no place left to turn for help. We believe that the addition of a Grant Development and Fundraising VISTA and their ability to research and request more grants for additional programs will allow DOM to grown our services to match the growth of the current poverty rate and help families recover financially from what has happened with the COVID-19 pandemic.
