Self-sufficiency ladder

Serve Denton’s mission is to support other nonprofits that 

open doors for people to become self-sufficient. 

 

We currently achieve our mission through The Wheeler 

House and The Assistance and Events Center.

The Wheeler House consists of a transitional housing facili-

ty for women and children run by Giving Hope, Inc. and an 

affordable  health  clinic  run  by  Health  Services  of  North 

Texas. The Assistance and Events Center houses multiple 

nonprofit agencies so those in need can visit one location. 

This is our Serve Denton 

Self-Sufficiency Ladder

. In order 

for someone to become self-sufficient, they must success-

fully address several of the issues exhibited on these rungs.

Fifi Rose’s Story

The  night  Fifi  Rose’s  husband,  Johnny,  left  her  with  5 
children, the 36-year-old mother began preparing for life on 
the streets. It was early June 2015, and most of her family 
lived too far away to help. 

Fifi  and  her  children  escaped  the  streets  because  of The 
Wheeler house. 

After 3 months, Fifi and her children were the first family to 
successfully  transition  out  of  The  Wheeler  House  into 
permanent housing in October 2015. 

Communication

Serve Denton started a podcast called 

Nonprofiting

to help other nonprofits better communicate, 

fundraise, cut cost, and more. We bring in experts in 

their fields to help other nonprofits succeed.  

The Wheeler House gave me an arm to grab onto, 

a hand to hold onto, when in my mind I knew of 

nothing else or no one else who could help us.

What People are saying about Serve Denton!

Without Serve Denton, Youth & Family Counseling 

would not have been able to establish a second 

location in Northern Denton County.

   of Youth & Family Counseling

“ ”

For anyone that doesn't believe that God 

always finds a way! I lost all hope until I found 

The  Wheeler  House! Thank  you  Giving  Hope 

and Serve Denton.

- Jamie G., former resident

  of The Wheeler House

I want to point out the greater value than dollars 

saved is the fact that our patients and the 

community has increased access to medical care 

as a result of implementing this site in the heart 

of the City of Denton.

- Pamela Barnes, Chief Financial 

  Officer of Health Services of  

  North Texas

The Denton Hunger Coalition thanks all of the 

community agencies that work tirelessly to make the 

Denton Mobile Pantry a success, including Serve 

Denton for helping us to continue to address the issue

Coalitions

Denton Hunger Coalition

  

      The coalition coordinates hunger relief efforts in Denton 

      County by facilitating programs that address the issue of 

      hunger. We do this through the monthly Mobile Food 

      Pantry, which provides high quality produce and shelf-stable 

      items. Other programs include the annual Mayor’s Day of 

      Concern for the Hungry, support of a large-scale refrigeration 

      center, and the Hunger in Focus advocacy program.

Denton County Human Trafficking Coalition 

   

     

The coalition seeks to improve communication between 

      agencies focused on human trafficking. We developed 

      a strategy to improve awareness of risks, education on

      recognizing when people are trafficked, and a list of 

      resources for victims and families to contact when they 

      need assistance.

How we partner with our community

Denton Together Coalition

  

      The coalition addresses racial justice issues in the 

      community. We secured an $8,000 grant from Target 

      to make community improvements as part of MLK 

      Day of Service. The coalition meets monthly to discuss 

      issues of fairness and racial justice before they become 
      too big to manage. 

 

Denton County Homeless Coalition 

  

      This coalition provides support for events and 

      training, participates in the Mayor’s homelessness 

      task force, and advocates for initiatives. It also 

      oversees the annual point-in-time count effort.
