This is the most powerful feature of this app. You can search from over 200 local service providers to help the poor in Dallas County. When you press this button, you will see a screen titled “Search Resources”. From here you can choose one of over 40 categories, or search by location (distance in miles). If you do not select any category, you will see all of the results on one map. On the results map, you will see your current location in red with all of the service providers marked in green. Select any service provider to get driving direction, or press the arrow next to their name for specific details. This information is gather through collaboration with other organizations and from their respective websites.

OurCalling visits over 1,000 locations to serve the homeless in Dallas. We have “Search & Rescue” teams that crawl in the woods, under bridges, behind stores and find thousands of homeless friends in desperate need of help. If you know of a location that we should visit, please press this button to take a photo. The app allows you to send us comments and contact information if you would like for us to follow up with you. When you submit this, your phone will also send us the GPS coordinates for your current location so that we can visit the same spot. Our Search & Rescue teams will find that place, look for new friends and do what we do best.

The Volunteer Calendar lists most of the opportunities to serve with OurCalling. We have opportunities for individuals of all ages and stages of life. From retirees, families with children to singles, everyone is welcome at OC. We would love to answer any questions you have about volunteering and find the right opportunity for you to serve. Do you want to bring a group from your office or church? We would love to host a team building opportunity for your group to serve the homeless together.
