Dallas Community Court for the Homeless - Fall 2010

One of the most critical issues facing many in the homeless community is the need to resolve legal problems. To meet this need, the Dallas Municipal Courts, the Dallas City Attorney’s office, and private attorneys in collaboration with The Stewpot provide complete Class C misdemeanor case resolution (other than thefts and assaults). A significant aspect of the Class C misdemeanor resolution is the alternative sentencing program. Community service organizations provide counseling and volunteer work opportunities to satisfy conditions of the alternative sentencing program imposed as a result of a guilty plea.

The next Community Court date is Nov. 6, 2010
Deadline to submit applications at The Stewpot is Oct. 15, 2010

Applications can be picked up at The Stewpot, 408 Park Ave, Dallas 75201 or 
Download and print an application

Please read the first page of the application carefully for procedures and instructions. 
This application is for homeless participants only.

Celebrate at The Angry Dog and benefit our homeless friends

The Angry Dog, a Deep Ellum bar and restaurant, is celebrating its 20th anniversary (e.g., 140 dog years!) for the entire month of September by donating 50 cents to selected local charities each time during the month of September they sell one of their top 20 food items. The 4 selected charities are The Stewpot, Paws in the City, ArtLoveMagic and the Children's Cancer Fund.  Join us over at the Angry Dog for wings, hamburgers, hot dogs, cheap eats and more this September!   Only 3 minutes away from First Presbyterian Church, head east on Young/Canton, left on South Good Latimer Expressway, and then take the first right on Commerce.  The Angry Dog is on your right at 2626 Commerce Street.
