IDEA is partnered with Dick Granger Neighborhood Ministry at the Church of the Incarnation to help our families with an acute and pressing financial need (e.g., those that may be facing eviction or other situations that may adversely impact a family). Financial assistance ranges from up to $500 to an individual and a family with as much as $750, sometimes more. We will help one client no more than once every twelve months. Call the hotline at 214-217-5656, leave a name and phone number and you will receive a call back for a short conversation about your situation. If you don’t have a phone, please leave a neighbor’s number. One of our few requirements is that the client/the parent should be working or actively searching for a job. They do not need to be a US citizen and we have Spanish-speaking volunteers.
