Network’s Response to COVID-19

There have been changes to Network’s service delivery related to COVID-19. Clients are not entering our building to minimize exposure and decrease the risk of disease transmission. Limited housing assistance is available to eligible families. If you need housing assistance and do not already have an appointment, please call 972-234-8880 ext. 104.

Update on food distribution: Beginning, Monday, July 13 Network’s Food Pantry will be open Monday-Wednesday from 8 am to 4 pm, Thursday Noon to 8 pm and Saturday 9 am to Noon. Food will be distributed by way of a “drive through/car pickup” process only in the rear of our building at 741 S. Sherman St., Richardson. Families should follow the drive through signs and stay in vehicle. Families must show proof of residence within RISD zip code areas. Families can also now receive food one time per week if needed. Food donations can also be dropped off during this time.

Clothing Donations Update: Effective November 2nd, Network will accept clothing donations from 8 am to 3:30 pm.


In order to keep everyone as safe and comfortable as possible, we are asking all volunteers to sign up before coming into network. Please select the appropriate link on our VOLUNTEER PAGE
