In November 2013, Newhouse + Noblin’s Dallas team drove delivery routes for Meals on Wheels. All around us are seniors in desperate need of nutritious meals and human contact. VNA volunteers and staff work through the Meals on Wheels program to serve qualified homebound seniors and disabled adults, helping them remain in their homes with dignity and independence.
VNA’s Meals on Wheels provides nutritious, freshly prepared, hot meals to Dallas County residents who can’t provide for themselves due to illness, advanced age or disability. To learn how you can volunteer for this vital community service, click here.
In October, Newhouse + Noblin’s Dallas team prepared and delivered over 500 snack packs to the SoupMobile. SoupMobile is a Dallas based charity that not only strives to feed the area’s homeless with food, but to also “feed” them with love, caring, compassion and shelter. We have been privileged to help in this cause many times over the past two years, and thanks to the efforts of the SoupMobile and its volunteers, over 200,000 meals were provided last year to Dallas’ homeless.
In August our Houston team donated back-to-school supplies to Star of Hope. The school supplies were distributed to homeless children at Star of Hope’s annual “Back-to-School Back Pack Party.” For more information about Star of Hope’s programs and ways to help, please click here.
In June our Houston team supported the BEAR Graduation Celebration. The mission of BEAR is to “Be a Resource for CPS Kids.” The program honors youth in the Preparation for Adult Living Program who are aging out of the Foster Care System.

In April 2013, Newhouse + Noblin’s Houston team partnered with Kids’ Meals, a group that prepares and delivers healthy lunches to over 1,700 hungry pre-school aged children living in poverty in the Houston area. Kids’ Meals bridges the gap for 1-5 year old kids who are too old for services from organizations such as WIC and not yet old enough to receive free breakfast and lunch in school.
