Your support of Project Vintage Runway will help transform lives to end homelessness one person at a time. Many of the participants who will be featured in our fashion show have experienced physical and emotional abuse. However, with the love and support they receive from UGM Dallas Center of Hope Women & Children’s Shelter, they will walk the runway with newfound confidence and self-esteem.

The UGM Dallas Center of Hope Women & Children’s Shelter provides hope for women and children. Many of the residents are women who have suffered both physical and emotional abuse and have ended up living in their cars or on the dangerous streets of Dallas.
The Center of Hope provides a safe environment where these women and children can flourish and rebuild their lives. The shelter offers not only meals and a safe place to sleep but also programs that include educational opportunities, child care, skills training and job placement. The staff and team of volunteers help transform lives to end homelessness one person at a time.
Women and children are the most precious members of society, and we must love, cherish and protect them.
