In the arena of community-based organizations, NETWORK of Community Ministries, Inc. responds to human need by giving short-term assistance with the goal of helping individuals achieve self-sufficiency. Although over a 100 charities thrive in the North Dallas area, NETWORK is the only one entrenched in the lives of low income families and dedicated daily to resolving their unexpected hardships with food, medication, clothing, rent, utility assistance, counseling and prescriptions. A true frontline charity nestled in the backyard of the renown Telecom Corridor, NETWORK remains a front-runner in quantities of food (over 500,000 lbs.) distributed annually to the needy and in total number served (over 35,000 annually in the last two years) for basic needs assistance in the Dallas County area.
