Over 35 years ago, our local community established Network as a place for area churches and civic organizations to best serve our neighbors in need.

  Today, it is our time to build upon that legacy of local investment and establish a new home.

OUR CASE

Since March of 2020, Network has increased food distributions by 600% and
rental/housing utility assistance by 400%

Network has been leasing its current 12,500 sq. ft. facility at 741 S. Sherman St. in Richardson for nearly 20 years. In that time, to accommodate Network’s program growth, the facility has undergone multiple renovations limited by the current landlord and building restrictions, leaving Network with challenges around client privacy, operational capacity and program efficiency.
Network’s unprecedented response to both the aftermath of 2019 tornadoes, and the economic hardships resulting from COVID-19 have made the limitations of our physical space abundantly clear and hastened our search for a new home.

Current Facility

In November 2020, Network acquired a new 50,000 square foot building at 1500 International Parkway in Richardson.

For Network, this new campus will transform the client and volunteer experience and provide essential resources for staff to effectively counsel, serve and support area families.

Network expects to move into the new building by Labor Day, 2021.

  • Classroom/Meeting Space for up to 100
  • New Private Case Management Space
  • Double the Reception Area
  • Dramatically Expanded Food Distribution and warehouse areas as well as increased Clothing Closet retail-like space
  • Capacity for Disaster Relief and Recovery
  • Safety
  • Space for partners including RISD Student Services Department.
