Read about our Beneficiaries and about how Kappa Tablescapes will support each
Angel Flight South Central coordinates volunteer pilots who donate fuel, and their own planes to provide free air transportation for people who need to travel long distances for medical treatment or other humanitarian purposes. During the COVID pandemic, demand has increased as people with compromised immune systems try to find alternative options to travel for life-saving treatments. Funding will be used to create new marketing materials to increase awareness in the medical and aviation communities, and to help us fly more people in need.
At Aspire, we believe learning turns obstacles into opportunities. Every day, we walk alongside our students as they make the brave decision to change their lives. From learning English or earning a GED, to balancing a family bank account or preparing for careers, our students face challenges with confidence. Because when you are ready to learn, there’s no obstacle you can’t overcome.
Attitudes & Attire encourages low-income women to rediscover their own self-worth – vital qualities to securing a stable job and improving earning power. Our approach of combining self-esteem building with workforce development training and attire equips our clients to go from barely surviving to thriving. Our clients live in a state of crises, and they could not be more vulnerable today as they deal with the ramifications of COVID-19. Funding will support our Boots to Heels program for women who have served in the military community: Active, Guard, Reserve, Veteran and Spouse.
Funding from Kappa Tablescapes to Brother Bill's Helping Hand (BBHH) provides food, healthcare, and education programming to those in need in the West Dallas and Oak Cliff community. We bring positive change to people's lives by providing them with tools, resources, hope, and dignity. In 2019 we served 750,000 meals, in 2020 that number grew to 1.3 million meals. In 2019, we supported an average of 800 families each month through our grocery services, and since April of 2020, we have increased the amount of food and number of monthly households served to over 1,000.
In partnership with DFW area pediatric hospitals, Camp John Marc serves children/teens and their families living with chronic medical and physical challenges at a uniquely designed camp facility. During the pandemic, campers and their families are enjoying s’mores around the campfire, fishing, and exploring nature through stress-free weekends at Camp, known as “Family Escapes.” Additionally, through our online program, CAMP IS MORE THAN A PLACE, we are providing campers the opportunity to take part in camp games, express thanks on our Wall of Gratitude, take time for self-care, and experience the traditions of Camp through recorded and live videos.
Jonathan’s Place provides a safe place, loving homes and promising futures for the abused and neglected children, teens and young adults of the Metroplex. They accomplish this through a collection of programs designed to meet the unique needs of each child in their care. One of these programs is the Girls Residential Therapeutic Program which provides specialized shelter and care to girls ages 10-18 who have been victimized by long term abuse and neglect.
The Ebby House at Juliette Fowler Communities is more than a shelter – it is a home for young girls ready to launch into successful adulthood who have suffered abuse, neglect or foster care in the past. This strength-based program mentors up to 12 young women at a time for up to 24 months to instill life skills, provide housing, healthcare, education, career guidance, job training and permanency.
The Salvation Army (TSA) works to combat poverty, homelessness and addiction, meeting basic human needs in Christ’s name, without discrimination. Funding from Tablescapes will support TSA’s Harbor Outreach program, which provides targeted street outreach and crisis intervention services to survivors of sex trafficking in Dallas. Through emergency services like shelter, feeding, and financial aid, as well as evidence-based programs that provide wraparound support, TSA offers pathways to rehabilitation, healing, and hope.
St. Philip's School and Community Center exists to provide an unparalleled education and compatible community services through a faith-based experience, with emphasis on serving low and moderate-income families. Our vision is transforming the world by FAITH, EDUCATION, and SERVICE. St. Philip’s is a unique and effective model for inner city transformation -- our School provides a rigorous education to 200 students from Pre-K to 6th Grade and the Community Center & Pantry serves over 4,000 of our South Dallas neighbors annually. Our ultimate goal is for South Dallas, a historically under-resourced area, to bloom into a healthy, thriving community.
The mission of The Warren Center is to advocate, serve, and empower children and their families in Dallas County impacted by developmental delays & disabilities. We work to ensure these children reach their full potential, and ensure their parents acquire resources & skills needed to build strong families, all while experiencing a childhood filled with possibilities, not limits. Funding will help provide life changing therapies for children ages birth – 3 years of age.
Kappa Kappa Gamma Foundation
