Story

Who We Are

Hope Supply Co. was founded in 1989 as The Hope Foundation for the Homeless and served as a clearinghouse of donated resources for the homeless.

During the early 1990s, mothers with babies and children became the fastest growing segment of the homeless population and an increased number of babies were being born into homelessness. Because of this alarming trend, the Board of Directors changed the name and mission of the organization in 1996 to focus resources on meeting the needs of the most vulnerable of the homeless – the children.

As a community we must remember that their problems are our problems

OUR MISSION

We meet the critical needs of homeless children across North Texas by providing necessities including diapers, clothing, school supplies, toys and programs to enhance their lives.

Agency Testimonial

“Hope Supply Company is such a blessing! Our shelter serves over 300 children a year and a large portion of those are infants and toddlers. With the help of HSC, we are able to provide the basic infant needs for our families. This allows them to focus on recovery and creating a better life for themselves and their children. Thank you, Hope Supply Co!” - Dallas Life

Giving Hope

We provide homeless children ages 0-18 with the essentials their parents are unable to provide, like diapers, wipes, ointments, formula, food, clothes and toys. Without these necessities, infants’ immune systems could be greatly damaged, leading to future health problems.  For more information about the impact of clean diapers on families, read this article from the National Diaper Bank Network.

Education breaks the cycle of homelessness, so we provide school supplies, backpacks and uniforms. This way children and parents can focus on the future, rather than their unmet needs.

Recreational Activities

We make it possible for our children to participate in activities outside their current situation. Our Spring Break Cowboy Camp, Summer Splash for Hope at Hawaiian Falls, Back to School Event and Holiday Hope on Wheels give our children a chance to have fun and learn about the world around them.

The Hope in a Box

Joy in a dire situation. Our Hope in a Box Program consists of Hygiene Boxes and Birthday Boxes. You choose which one you or your group would enjoy. Birthday boxes are gift wrapped shoe boxes filled with small gifts and surprises for a child of a specified age and gender. Hygiene boxes are clear, plastic shoe box size boxes filled with hygiene items appropriate for a specific age and gender.  You can click  here to download our Hygiene Box and Birthday Box specifications.

What We Do

Hope Supply Co maintains a large warehouse and procures, stores and delivers critically needed items for our children such as diapers, wipes, hygiene items, school supplies, school uniforms and toys. These items are distributed to our 60 partner agencies. Together we help bring hope to homeless children and their families. Below is a list of our Hope Bringer partners.

Adam's Story

The policeman was nice. He dropped us off at a place called a shelter. My Mom says it's temporary. I hope that word does not mean a very long time. When my Dad left to find a job it was temporary and I haven't seen him for a long time. My Dad gave me an Army coat like his but I had to leave it in my room in our old house. I miss my room. I had lots of stuff in there. Like my school uniform and backpack with pencils and paper and colors. Maybe I won't have to go to school tomorrow 'cause the shelter is so far from my school. Anyway, I don't have my school uniform.

My mom cries when I talk about my uniform. I don't like to see my mom cry. My baby sisters cry, too. My mom says they won't cry so much if she could get diapers for them. They are babies. I'm not going to cry. Well, not when my mom is around. It makes her sad.

The shelter is good. It has a bathroom and books to read. They say we might get a room to live in if we have to stay a long time. I don't want to stay a long time but I don't like this really big room. It has lots of people and beds. My mother, my two sisters, and me only have two small beds to sleep in. And the men outside are kinda scary. But my mom says we are safe and warm.

Today a man came in a van that said "Hope Supply Co." He gave me a coat, school uniforms and a backpack filled with all the things I need for school. He gave us diapers and formula for my baby sister. I like Hope Supply Co. I can wear my new uniform to school.

Help bring hope to kids like Adam.
