As the holiday season approaches, Whitebox will be partnering with two Dallas organizations to help make the season a little easier for some local families – below is a list of items that will benefit both organizations, broken down basically by age.
We’d love for you to partner with us! If you have been looking for an organization to support or are interested in spreading out your joy, please let us know!
We are happy to come pick up any donations, or another option would be to purchase online and have them shipped directly to our office. All donations must be collected by November 30, 2021!
Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center coordinates the investigation, prosecution, and healing services for the most severe cases of child abuse in Dallas County – those that rise to the level of a criminal offense. Each year, DCAC serves over 8,000 children (and their non-offending family members) who were sexually abused, severely physically abused, or who had witnessed a violent crime. The average client is a 9-year-old girl, sexually abused by someone she knows and trusts. A DCAC family advocate meets with the family to help them navigate our complex judicial system, provide victim services, and connect them with life-changing, evidence-based therapy at DCAC.
Homeless children are the most invisible and neglected members of our community. But Vogel Alcove is devoted to helping these children cope with the physical, emotional, and mental trauma they are experiencing so that they might succeed in life despite their circumstances. We offer therapeutic educational programs that are specifically designed to support children (ages six weeks to 12 years) who are experiencing the trauma of homelessness. These programs include Early Childhood Services, School-Age services, Mental Health Services, Health Services & Family Support.
