With the state of today’s economy, a crisis could affect the lives of each one of us or the lives of those close to us in many ways. Mission Arlington is here to provide a “helping hand”. We do what we can when the unexpected lay-off, sudden health problem or tragic circumstance occurs to help make a positive difference.
The Ministry of Crisis Intervention
To apply for help, visit the front room at the Mission Arlington/Mission Metroplex offices Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 5:00pm and on Saturdays from 9:00am to 2:00pm. Or learn how you can help families in need.
Direct financial assistance is provided to help families with portions of their rent, utility, gasoline, and prescription costs. Information about social service agencies is also available for those who need further help. For more information or to make a donation, call us at 817-277-6620. For your convenience, we also accept online donations.
Food, Home and Personal Needs
We supply families with short-term supplies of groceries, personal hygiene items, diapers, baby formula and more to help them get by when resources are tight. We are always in need of non-perishable items to keep our pantry stocked and ready for families in need. Learn about all the ways you can help, download the food list for your next shopping trip, or learn how to put together your own food bags.
Mission Arlington is here to make sure donations such as clothing, furniture, appliances and other household items get to those in need.
Clothing Room: Located at the main Mission campus and various other locations, Mission Arlington provides adult and children’s clothes free of charge. Men and women can find clothes for job interviews, school clothes for their children, and more.
Furniture and Appliances: Monday through Saturday, the Mission picks up donated furniture and appliances and delivers them to families who have experienced loss due to flood, fire, and other crisis situations. Mission Arlington is always in need of skilled mechanics, drivers and more to volunteer.
Household Items: All household items donated by the community are given directly to people in need. Items such as blankets, dishes, pictures, silverware and all other sorts of items are provided to help people in crisis.
Computers: Volunteers at Mission Arlington restore donated computer systems to give to children in our community. Additionally, computer classes are offered by Mission Arlington at different times throughout the community. If you would like to volunteer your Technical expertise or learn more about classes contact us at 817-277-6620 or send us an email.
Mission Arlington transports people in need to various locations in Arlington for jobs, education and job training, social service needs, childcare, after-school programs, tutoring, and more. We also accept bikes and automobile donations to help community members with transportation needs.
Automobiles: Mission Arlington receives donated automobiles in both running and non-working order. When possible, our volunteer mechanics get vehicles in working order and get the vehicle to someone in need.
Gasoline Vouchers: With gasoline prices at an all-time high, families struggle to get to work because they don’t have the resources to fill their tanks. On a limited basis, Mission Arlington provides gas vouchers to help people in emergency situations get to work and the doctor.
Bicycles: Bikes are not only a wonderful gift for children and teenagers in our community; they help provide transportation to people who have no other means of transportation. Have a bicycle you no longer need? Drop it by the Mission Arlington main offices.
