Be the spark that ignites hope in Texas

Celebrate With Us Year-Round

Each year, SVdP North Texas provides millions of dollars of financial and in-kind assistance, providing for the basic needs of our neighbors in need.

We also facilitate 3 systemic change programs to address underlying causes of poverty and help our friends change their lives permanently.

So each year we celebrate by hosting an annual event, the Spark of Hope.

We mark the impact made in the previous year, and raise funds to continue doing the Society’s good work in North Texas for the year to come.

Join Us On April 28, 2022
