The Stewpot began providing meals to homeless and at-risk neighbors in downtown Dallas more than 40 years ago. Programs and partnerships have developed to support medical and dental needs, counseling and case management, youth and family stabilization programs, therapeutic and vocational activities.
Since its inception, The Stewpot has embraced the concept that transformation and growth take place when a person’s basic needs are met and creative spirit is nourished. In 2013, The Stewpot helped birth Encore Park, a new nonprofit that includes a community garden and amphitheater at 508 Park, across from The Stewpot. Additional expansion is planned to house partner agencies and programs at an adjoining property, 515 Park.
