We did have a “shower” for the physical building last May 2011, requesting donations of office, bathroom/kitchen, and cleaning supplies. So far, when we lacked something needed for operations, one of the Irving Women’s Network volunteers has provided it. In other words, we have operated with no money. As a 501(c)3, we can actually ask for funds and buy clothing items that are not available from Dignity U Wear.

The main volunteer base is and continues to be the Homeless Teens Committee which is comprised of members of Irving Women’s Network (IWN) a 501(C)6 professional networking organization. The new clothing which we receive is a result of a triad partnership with IWN, Stein Mart-Las Colinas and Dignity U Wear, a national charity based in Jacksonville, FL. IWN is a Partner In Education with Project PASS – a program assisting students in Irving ISD who are homeless. The Optimist Club of Irving has adopted The Main Place as their project, as has the Life Group of Urban Hills Church.
