An Important Message from Vogel Alcove CEO, Karen Hughes
WE NEED YOU, WE MUST HELP OUR FAMILIES!
Vogel Alcove is an “essential service” to the community
Stability for our families is extremely fragile; they have little or no support system, even on a regular day, much less during this crisis. Some have already lost their jobs, others need childcare to keep their jobs.
Beginning March 30, Vogel Alcove staff will return and begin implementing new programming.
The “Vogel Eats” program will deliver hot breakfast and lunches daily, along with other needed items such as diapers/wipes/clothes/cleaning supplies directly to the doors of the families that need our assistance.
Our case management team will begin “Virtual Case Management.”
Classroom teachers will develop school supply and art kits for our children.
Beginning April 6, Vogel Alcove will be open for children to return.
We will open the facility for our children to return, allowing their parents to return to work, or look for work. New health screening measures and social distancing policies will be in place.
We will open Gap Camp to serve children ages K-5th grade – and support them with their e-learning assignments and provide recreational activities.
How Can YOU Help?
Provide Financial Support
Our fundraising events and activities have been hit the hardest by this situation. Your financial support is our greatest need at this time. We must meet the needs of our community’s most vulnerable residents, Dallas’ homeless children and their families. We must be able to retain and pay our qualified staff, and we must evolve our programming to meet the needs of our families during the COVID-19 crisis. Your financial contribution will help us continue to provide services and resources to our families as we face new challenges each day.
Beginning March 30, you can drop these off curbside. Donate Monday – Friday between 9 AM and 11 AM.
Volunteer Your Time
At-home volunteer projects – call us to discuss ideas for things you and your family or colleagues can do for us while you are home – our building will be closed to outside volunteers for the foreseeable future, but there are things you can do to help remotely.

2. What can my arts organization do to improve our chances of being funded?
3. What's the biggest mistake arts nonprofits make when applying for grant funding?
