The Stewpot

The Stewpot offers a safe haven for homeless and at-risk individuals of Dallas and the surrounding areas, providing resources for basic survival needs as well as opportunities to start a new life. Established by First Presbyterian Church of Dallas in 1975, The Stewpot began serving food when church members realized no other resources were available for the homeless and hungry.

At The Stewpot’s main location, other services include: case management, health care, and substance abuse assistance; youth programs; job training; rep payee; referral for employment, housing and other benefits; access to mailing address and voice mail. Creative and social activities include art classes, community concerts, and talent shows. The Stewpot has a volunteer base of over 2,000 volunteers.

Since May 2008, The Stewpot has been the sole meal provider at The Bridge (Dallas’ homeless assistance center), serving 1,500-2,000 meals per day, 7 days per week. First Presbyterian Church of Richardson regularly sends a team of volunteers to help serve meals. For more information about volunteering at The Bridge, contact the church office at (972) 235-2316.
