Serving Our Homeless and

Other In-Need Neighbors

Featured Organizations: Help them meet their current need by donating today.

Lovie's Outreach

Lovie's, Ellis County's soup kitchen, is finishing the work on their new location which needs, among other things, a commercial vent hood system with fire suppressant. Then, the city can certify the kitchen and they can start serving meals again. Read more about their organization below.

They need $2,000.

Daniel's Den

Daniel's Den is building a new facility. It will house more clients and families in better surroundings as well as provide an improved emergency shelter when needed and more community involvement. They are still in the planning stages but here is an image that shows the current plan. As you can imagine, new buildings cost millions of dollars. "The Den" needs $900,00 to make this a reality. Let's start donating today! Read more about their work below.

Daniel's Den/
Samaritan House*

Established in 1996, Daniel's Den is a faith-based interdenominational Christian ministry providing emergency assistance and transitional housing in Ellis County. Our goal is to provide individuals an opportunity to move beyond shelter. We strive to send individuals and families back to the community with the ability to live and work independently.



With faithful support from individuals, churches and foundations, we serve nearly 5,000 children and families across three states every year. As stewards of this trust and support, we follow these tenets of excellence to ensure adults achieve self-sufficiency and children are placed into loving, permanent homes.



Lovie's Outreach is open to the public. We are specifically geared to feed and assist the homeless and anyone that falls within the "gap". The "gap" consists of those that earn too much money to qualify for government assistance but struggle to make ends meet between checks. Initially, when our kitchen is completed, we will only be open on Wednesday evenings. We'll serve from 5 pm until the food runs out. At our new location, we are primarily set up to be a come and go but will also have limited seating if needed.



Runner’s Refuge is a compassionate ministry dedicated to reaching people in crisis with the love of Jesus Christ through biblical hospitality, prayer, and situational intervention. We do this by serving the homeless community, reaching families living in impoverished areas, and serving communities in crisis through long-term disaster recovery programs.
