Fraternity Brothers with a Heart for the Homeless

Dallas, TX – The Metro Dallas Homeless Alliance estimated that in 2011 there were 5,783 homeless people in Dallas County, many living in the downtown area less than 20 miles from Dallas Baptist University. Several fraternity brothers at DBU were moved by this statistic and decided that they would dedicate time each month as a fraternity to serve the needy population in their community. Since service is a key component of each Greek organization at DBU, the members of Pi Theta Tau made homeless ministry a central aspect of their organization.
