Galgos del Sol

In 2007, Tina Solera, her husband and two young children moved to Spain to escape the infamous British weather. Little did Tina realize, upon moving to Spain, that she would make the decision that would change her life forever. In addition, she changed the lives of thousands of dogs desperately in need of help.

Always an animal lover, Tina could not tolerate the treatment of the Spanish galgos, a traditional hunting dog breed, and decided to devote herself to their rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming. The galgos with their indomitable spirits, needle-noses and spider-legs, completely captured her heart. One galgo rescued, gave way to another and another until it became clear that the Solera household was vastly undersized for the number of dogs that needed help. There were nights that Tina slept in her car with a newly rescued galgo simply because there wasn’t any more room.

With no prior experience in running a non-profit organization, Tina taught herself Spanish language and established Galgos del Sol (GDS), a legal, licensed Spanish charity. With the generous offer of the use of their property, the home of Gaynor and Les Davies become the first site of GDS. Les built the kennels and Gaynor provided care for the dogs. Without their initial help, Tina acknowledges that GDS would not be where it is today. Murcia, the area in which the Soleras reside, is a prolific hunting ground making the demands on GDS relentless. Because of Tina and Team GDS, thousands have been rescued, rehabilitated and rehomed.

Catholic Charities Dallas

CCD was formally established in 1941 and incorporated from the Catholic Diocese of Dallas in 1997. Annually, CCD helps over 150,000 individuals achieve stability and self-sufficiency through financial literacy, employment services, education, food programs, immigration legal services, refugee resettlement, disaster services, and permanent supportive housing.

CCD is comprised of more than 30 individual programs serving the nine counties in North Texas that make up the Diocese of Dallas. Each individual program has a particular strength and service area that represents the diversity of the populations we serve, yet our efforts to restore dignity to our community members in need remain the same regardless of what program serves them.

From homelessness to hunger, from victims of abuse to refugees of war and oppression, from the hurting to the lost, we partner with our clients to serve them during their greatest time of need and continue to walk with them on their journey to self-sufficiency.

Hope Clinic of McKinney

Hope Clinic of McKinney is a faith-based non-profit where we look to share the love of Christ by providing hope and healing for the whole person. Our vision is to become the full time medical home for over 1,000 uninsured residents in our county. We strive to create a space where everyone is treated with dignity, respect and love while delivering high quality medical, wellness and spiritual care.

Hope Clinic of McKinney saw its first patient in 2017, the fulfillment of a plan that began in 2014 with the recognition of the unmet need for quality care for the uninsured in our community. 12% of McKinney residents are without medical insurance. In East McKinney where Hope Clinic is located, the need is even higher. In June 2016, a team of volunteers and partners formed to bring our mission of Hope and Healing in McKinney to life. Hope Clinic of Garland, a well-established charitable clinic in Dallas County, welcomed the team into their facility and provided much-needed encouragement and knowledge. We partnered with the Baptist Immigration Center, who generously offered to donate the use of their building to Hope Clinic to use when they were closed. And Empowering Community Health Outreach donated their consulting services to provide vital direction and infrastructure to clinic planning.

Through the hard work of its volunteers, and with the support of the community, Hope Clinic began operations one day a week at the Baptist Immigration Center in July 2017 to provide medical services regardless of a patient’s ability to pay. By 2018, clinic operations expanded to 2 days. And in September 2019, Hope Clinic relocated to our current location which is a dedicated permanent clinic space on E. Lamar. Our new home allows for increased operating hours and more patients. Our vision is to expand operations over the next few years to be able to see medical and counseling patients 5 days a week.

Over 100 volunteers from all across the community have worked together to serve our uninsured neighbors at the Hope Clinic of McKinney. And we have grown to serve hundreds of patients and provide thousands of appointments to patients who otherwise would have gone without care or gone to an emergency room for basic medical care.

We need people like you to serve those who need it most.
