Sharing Life exists to demonstrate compassion by effectively and efficiently providing dignified, benevolent services to families in need in Southeastern Dallas, Rockwall, and Kaufman County.
The vision for Sharing Life Community Outreach was born in my heart many years ago. I envisioned a place of hope for people who find themselves in need. I envisioned a cheery place; warm and friendly. A place where the client would feel respected and welcome. A place of encouragement and opportunity – a place where ‘demonstrating compassion’ is not just our tagline, it’s who we are at our core.

As a nonprofit, benevolent organization our primary goal is to come along side individuals and families who need help obtaining the basic necessities of life.

Services we offer:
• A food pantry and clothes closet.
• Holiday programs that provide food (Thanksgiving) and gifts (Christmas) as well as a Back-to-School Fair.
• Utility assistance for those who are subject to disconnection of water, gas, or electrical services.
• Assistance in getting gasoline to search for a job or get to work.
• Educational programs to enrich the lives and future of our clients that include jobs skills training with basic computing skills and standard business applications, job interview skills classes which include resume writing and dressing for success, parenting classes, a twelve step class for those struggling with addiction and a mentoring program for young, single mothers.

All of these services are delivered with not only compassion, but with a commitment to excellence using best practices to ensure our clients receive the best possible care.
