Monsignor King once stated regarding his ecumenical outreach vision, that simply, “this is what we’re supposed to be doing”……
“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
The MKOC is open from 6:30PM-8AM Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights and during inclement weather: when temperature drops below 32 degrees, when the heat increases to 100 degrees and during severe storms. We offer a nourishing meal Mondays – Wednesdays, a bed with linens for a comfortable night’s sleep, and Christian fellowship from our wonderful volunteers.
We serve under the direction of the Monsignor King Outreach Center Board of Directors. It is a true collaboration of several churches, organizations, individuals, and businesses.
Many faith groups, individuals, and organizations volunteer their time and donate supplies to the operation of the Shelter. All of these efforts and generous donations play a part in our success.
Over the years, numerous local restaurants, families and groups have generously provided evening meals, serving up to 60+ guests.
The mission of the Monsignor King Outreach Center is to render emergency assistance, care, and comfort to members of the Denton County community who are experiencing homelessness by providing shelter, a nourishing meal, and supportive services in collaboration with other community agencies.
With your time, talents and treasure, we can help realize Msgr. King’s dream truly helping our fellow brothers and sisters to feel loved, appreciated, and have the dignity of self sufficiency. ~Thank You
