White Rock Friends is a community service project of White Rock Community Church. It's mission is to support the HIV / AIDS community by offering a variety of programs to assist individuals in their day to day lives. These programs work to meet the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of people living with HIV/AIDS. White Rock Friends is part of the Dallas County AIDS Assistance Network.
Starting June 6th Friends resumed as a drive through only event. Supplies that we can obtain and lunches will be prepackaged and distributed the first and third Saturdays from 10 to 2. A walk up process is also available. Clients must have their card and will recieve goods once a month. To-Go meals will be provided both Saturdays.
We believe cleanliness is essential to healthy living. Many people living with HIV/AIDS have limited access to personal hygiene items and cleaning supplies. The General Store distributes personal care products (soap, shampoo, toothpaste), and household cleaning products (laundry detergent, bleach) to clients of White Rock Friends. The store is open on the first three Tuesdays and Saturdays of each month from 10 AM until 2 PM.
Saturday Meals Program
Many of our clients depend on community resources for food and meal assistance. Our Saturday program provides much needed meals during the weekends when other agencies are closed. Each week we serve as many as 130 people a warm lunch in our activity center. Volunteers of the lunch program offer encouragement and fellowship. We can always use extra hands to serve a plate, scrub a pot and share God's love through this kitchen ministry. Lunch is available between 11 AM until 1 PM on the first three Saturdays of each month.
Friends Pet Pals Program
Assists our clients with the needs of their loving companions. Caring for a their pets provides therapeutic benefits for many of our clients. Your gifts of dog food, cat food and cat litter enables them to keep their pets with less financial hardship. Donations are accepted on Tuesdays and Saturdays in the Activity Center.
Spiritual / Ministerial Counseling
Pastors are available to offer individual spiritual counseling and guidance.
White Rock Friends is part of the Dallas County AIDS Assistance Network. We can assist individuals in finding other organizations that offer case management, housing assistance, medical / dental care, education / prevention, children's services, transportation, legal assistance and more.
