After you search for resources, you will be presented with a map view. This let’s you see all of the resources near your present location. You can choose to get driving directions or click on the arrow beside the name of the resource to get more information.
After you search for resources, you can also select to see a “list” view. This will show the resources listed by distance from your current location. Clicking on the arrow beside the name of each resource will give you specific details.
The resource detail page will provide you with basic information about this resource. You will find a link to their website (for more detailed information), phone number and physical address (when available). Some resources, like Domestic Violence centers do not give their physical address. If you need help from any specific provider, we suggest you contact them directly.
If you find any inaccurate details or know of any resource that is not in our list, please contact us. We are making daily changes to this app and strive to get the data as accurate as possible.[contact-form to=’firstname.lastname@example.org’ subject=’App Updates’][contact-field label=’Name’ type=’name’ required=’1’/][contact-field label=’Email’ type=’email’ required=’1’/][contact-field label=’Comment’ type=’textarea’ required=’1’/][/contact-form]
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. Contact us at email@example.com for more information.
