$50,000 grant will assist Promise House with life-changing programs for homeless youth in Dallas.

IRVING, US: ExxonMobil Corporation said that its chairman and CEO, Darren Woods presented a $50,000 gift to Promise House to assist in its mission of providing critical services to homeless children and teens in Dallas, Texas.

Established in 1984, Promise House combats youth homelessness with unique programs that address the needs of homeless, runaway and at-risk youth. The organization provides residential services, including emergency shelter and long-term housing to youth in need. Promise House programs develop critical life skills, personal responsibility and financial independence, as well as offer a broad continuum of health, education and counselling services.

Through its community outreach initiatives, Promise House partners with physical and mental health care providers, state and local agencies and schools to offer a range of services to non-residential clients in crisis. Support includes food kits, community counselling, parent education classes and case management.

“More than 1,200 Dallas-area youth do not have a bed to sleep in each night. Promise House helps the most vulnerable people in our community and guides them toward a brighter, more promising future. We are proud to support them with this year’s gift,” said Woods.

“For years, ExxonMobil has been a dedicated partner in our mission to end youth homelessness in North Texas. This gift will help us provide hot meals, safe shelter, counselling, education services and much more to our city’s most vulnerable young people. ExxonMobil’s support will be critical as we expand to meet the needs of a growing number of homeless children and teens in our community,” added Dr Ashley Lind, CEO of Promise House.
