An Oak Cliff-based nonprofit received a boost from one of the world’s largest corporations last week.
Exxon Mobil Corp. gave $50,000 to Promise House, which supports homeless, runaway and at-risk youth in North Texas.
Promise House has helped some 75,000 kids and families since it opened in 1984.
“For years, Exxon Mobil has been a dedicated partner in our mission to end youth homelessness in North Texas,” Promise House CEO Ashley Lind stated in a release. “This gift will help us provide hot meals, safe shelter, counseling, education services and much more to our city’s most vulnerable young people. Exxon Mobil’s support will be critical as we expand to meet the needs of a growing number of homeless children and teens in our community.”
