ABOUT ARLINGTON LIFE SHELTER: Arlington Life Shelter serve men, women, and children in the Dallas-Ft Worth area. They are in the process of expanding their facility so that they are able to help more people. The uniqueness of the Arlington Life Shelter is that the people there are not necessarily the homeless standing on the street corner holding a sign, but those who were once on top until "life happened" causing them to lose it all with nowhere to go. Therefore, you may meet people with a college degree alongside a person with little education. It doesn't matter what brought them to the shelter, but that there is a shelter available. The goal of the Arlington Life Shelter is to help their clients return to a life of sufficiency, and break the cycle of poverty.

Hi my name is Destiny. For the past two years I have raised money for the Arlington Life Shelter so that the homeless staying there can have a wonderful Christmas! It all started when our family was on the way to church I would always see homeless people on the corner asking for money. I asked my mom if homeless people got Christmas gifts. She said she didn't know, so I told her I wanted to get them presents, and that's how Destiny’s Dream started.
This year I have invited my friends to help me. Their names are Giselle and Jahzara. I invited them because they both have creative minds and a talent to think outside the box. Giselle would be good at coming up with flyer ideas so that people know what we are doing, and Jahzara is good at getting the word out to everybody.
Together, with the help of our friends and family, I think we can do it.
Hi my name is Giselle, and I am 10 years old. I enjoy singing, volleyball, basketball, soccer, and running track. I also enjoy being a part of invention camp, because I want to be an engineer in robotics.
I want to be a part of Destiny’s Dream, because I already have experience in helping the homeless. I used to help pass out food twice a month to make sure families had a good meal.
Hi my name is Jahzara, and I am 10 yrs old. I enjoy hanging out with my friends, basketball, and being creative. I want to be a fashion designer. The reason I want to help with Destiny's Dream is because it's something that I always wanted to do. I like helping and bringing a smile to people's face.
