President Donald Trump and Texas Governor Greg Abbott have declared Sunday, September 3rd as a Day of Prayer. The City of Dallas, in partnership with the Red Cross and the Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD) Spiritual & Emotional Care team, will coordinate interfaith Sunday services at each of the Dallas shelters for displaced families who wish to attend. Services will be held in English at 10 a.m. Following lunch, services will be held in Spanish at 2 p.m.
These services are not open to the public.
VOAD organizations facilitate spiritual and emotional care services in Dallas shelters to provide disaster care and counseling. To serve with the VOAD Spiritual Care team, faith-based member organizations must complete training on several topics, including trauma counseling and disaster care. Faith-based organizations who are registered and trained may be activated to serve in a shelter, as needed for disaster care and counseling. To learn more, visit dallascountyvoad.org.
