Calvert Place Men's Shelter

Intake Hours:
Intake for Calvert Place Men’s Shelter happens every afternoon from 3:00-5:00 p.m. at The Bridge located at 1818 Corsicana Street, in downtown Dallas.  Clients are bused to the shelter and bused back to The Bridge the next morning.

Calvert Place Men’s Shelter serves adult homeless men and veterans age 18+.  From the moment a new client walks into the shelter, they are shown the love of Jesus by both staff members and volunteers.  The staff is prepared to address the very diverse and sometimes critical needs of each individual by providing  hot meals, a comfortable bed, clothing, a warm shower, health and mental health clinics, and daily chapel service.  In small Bible study groups men learn about God’s love and how He can completely transform their lives through a personal relationship with Him.  On-site learning centers teach basic life skills, as well as train them for jobs that are relevant in todays’ marketplace.  By taking a holistic approach to their recovery, these men leave equipped to successfully integrate into the outside world.

The shelter is able to serve up to 335 homeless men every day.

Calvert Place has secure lockers, giving each client a place to store their possessions.  When a client goes through intake, he is assigned a specific bed.  That same bed is his for the duration of his stay at the shelter giving him a sense of belonging.

Discipleship Program

All three shelters offer long-term, faith-based rehabilitation programs called Discipleship. These programs are designed to help people end their personal struggles with homelessness, first by establishing and nurturing a relationship with Jesus Christ, then by learning the skills necessary to re-enter society and live an independent life. This process includes graduating from the Mission’s Learning Center, obtaining a job and, in the final phase, living in a transitional living facility. Prior to graduation from the program, each disciple must be involved with a local church, have a savings account, hold a job and be living independently.

The Discipleship Program is self-paced, and usually takes between eighteen months and two years to complete.
