CHF Responds to the Rising Needs in Our Community

The Chris Howell Foundation is committed to ending the cycle of poverty.

Dallas has the most people living below the poverty line of any city in America – many of whom do not qualify for government assistance. They are the working poor. These families are underserved, food insecure, and stuck in the cycle of poverty.

The Chris Howell Foundation is committed to ending the cycle of poverty in Dallas and Fort Worth. With friendly smiles, dozens of volunteers and CHF employees load boxes of fresh food into the hundreds of cars that line up at every distribution event. Since June 2020, CHF has served over 3 million pounds of food to over 100,000 families in both Dallas and Tarrant counties.

In addition to food distribution events, CHF holds free health and wellness fairs that include HIV/AIDS and STD testing, blood pressure checks, and glucose and A1C screenings.

This month’s back-to-school events offered families free health screenings, COVID-19 vaccines, and CPR certification while over 1000 children were left with food boxes, backpacks, and school supplies.

“We’re caring for the whole person,” says CHF CEO, Chris Howell. “We’re giving hope and encouragement to the people we serve and offer them the education and support they need to truly achieve financial stability for the long term.”

To help individuals and families break out of the cycle of poverty, the Chris Howell Foundation offers programs that educate and empower change including HIV/AIDS prevention and education, financial literacy programming, and housing services.
