On a single night in the US in 2020 there were 580,466 people experiencing homelessness. 

In Dallas County that number is 4,471 people and in Irving that number is in the hundreds. These people, our homeless neighbors, represent a cross-section of America. They are associated with every region of the country, family status, gender category, and racial/ethnic group.

At Christ Church people are important to us, wherever they are in life. Families and individuals are struggling more than ever during this age of Covid-19 and difficult economic times. We want, where we can, to help people through the tough times in their life. With that in mind, we have multiple opportunities to reach out and help those homeless neighbors in our community.


For those with a heart for our homeless neighbors in Irving but who aren’t sure how to help. This was a study presented via Zoom in October 2020 led by Dustin Perkins, Director of Programing at Austin Street Center for the homeless in Dallas as well as Chairman of the Dallas Homeless Continuum of Care Assembly and Vice Chairman of the Metro Dallas Homeless Alliance (MDHA) Board of Directors.


Each year, in our country, an estimated 4.2 million youth and young adults experience homelessness. 700,000 are unaccompanied minors, meaning they are not a part of a family or in the company of a parent or adult. 1 in 10 young adults ages 18 to 25 and at least 1 in 30 adolescents ages 13 to 17 experience some form of homelessness over the course of a year. In our own city of Irving, TX hundreds of teenagers will be forced to live without a place to call home.

Brought to you by Level Pathways and the Irving Community Action Network, this roundtable explores the tragedy that is occurring all around us. Hosted by Christ Church the panel guests include Dr. Lori Davis, President and Bob Harris, Executive Director of Level Pathways; Keri Stitt, President and CEO of Youth180; Sofia Galvan, Director of At-Risk & Responsive Services at Irving ISD and moderator Dustin Perkins, Sr. Director of Client Solutions & Strategy at Austin Street Center in Dallas.
