2019 marked the 30th anniversary of Trinity Habitat for Humanity (Trinity Habitat). First Presbyterian Church has been a partner with Trinity Habitat from the beginning. First Pres built our 25th and 50th houses on our parking lot and we even built a few houses at Mayfest. In May of 2019, we celebrated the 90th house that we have partnered with Habitat to build. In 2022, we built our 100th house with Trinity Habitat.
The Presbyterian Night Shelter was started by a group of Presbyterian churches as an overnight shelter for men, women and children struggling with homelessness in Tarrant County. Today, we retain many of the elements that gave us our name, providing (but not requiring) spiritual guidance for those who seek it. And while our overnight emergency shelter services are still available to anyone who needs them, we’re equally focused on helping our guests find their own permanent housing.
The mission of the DRC is to provide respectful, responsible, and effective community-based solutions to help individuals and families emerge from homelessness as productive, healthy people.
James L. West has many opportunities for volunteers to assist with residential and adult day programs as well as to take on projects around their campus. These volunteers give their time and talents to bring joy to our residents and participants in the senior day program.
New Leaf was incorporated after a group of concerned individuals and organizations, led by First Presbyterian Church Fort Worth, joined hands to turn funds pledged by the City of Fort Worth into the financial cornerstone for permanent supportive housing.
PCHAS offers a variety of residential- and community-based programs across three states, along with initiatives to empower churches to support foster care families.
