Child & Teen Programs & Services

Your children and teens are welcome here…

One of our major endeavors at Dallas LIFE is to love, nurture, and help homeless children of all ages feel safe and secure.

Besides meeting their basic daily needs, we surround children with a full support system so they are able to continue grow and learn, go to school and church, have friends and participate in activities that are educational, enriching, and fun.

Children at Dallas LIFE stay with their parent(s) in one of our 50 family rooms.


Infants and toddlers at Dallas LIFE are provided with diapers, wipes, clothing, formula, bottles, strollers, car seats, toys and books.


Dallas LIFE works closely with the Dallas Independent School District to facilitate enrollment and transportation. We provide school uniforms, backpacks and school supplies, tutoring and reading programs. Volunteers, tutors and mentors play a vital role in encouraging and equipping students.


Children at Dallas LIFE are guests at area day camps and Vacation Bible Schools, and enjoy field trips and back to school parties.


Children and teens can receive confidential counseling if they desire. Teens may participate in mentoring programs where they are paired with an older individual to guide them in specific areas.


Dallas LIFE offers childcare/daycare referrals, parenting classes, nutrition classes, and counseling to our residents with children.
