Throwing Aces Homeless Advocacy
HELP OTHERS BY GIVING
In a time that feels unsure for so many, Throwing Aces has joined in the fight to make homeless rare, brief, and non-recurring. But we cannot do that alone. With our knowledgeable staff, strong community partnerships, and your generosity, we can be agents of change to see a brighter future for those who have been marginalized in our community.
MORE ABOUT US
TAHA is founded on four benchmarks, which we call ACES:
• Service to the poor and vulnerable (anyone and everyone)
• Inherent dignity of all persons
• Value of all human life
• Justice (access and participation)
The mission of Throwing Aces Homeless Advocacy is to engage and advocate for those who are experiencing homelessness in the Greater Waco area from a distinctly Christian perspective.
Whether you contribute financially or work with us as a volunteer, your heart for those who are marginalized and vulnerable in our city will make a difference!

ANYONE & EVERYONE.
No one can do life completely on their own. We are made to live in community. At Throwing Aces, we invite anyone & everyone to sit with us and share our table. We don’t have all the answers, but we work closely with our clients and community partners to bring about positive sustainable change.
WE ARE HERE TO HELP!
Through weekly outreaches and short-term intensive work, we are able to connect with those in our community who are marginalized and at risk. We do this in order to assist them in getting connected to the resources Waco has to offer. With practical planning, client-driven goals, and a clear vision, Throwing Aces is able to make a substantial impact in an abbreviated period of time.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
MAKE A DONATION
Your generosity makes our work possible! When you contribute financially you are advocating for the good of those who are experiencing homelessness in our community. Being good stewards of your gift is something we take seriously.
Many people who are experiencing homelessness lack basic personal care items needed for everyday life. Consider donating items for our outreach efforts. Visit our Amazon list and purchase items that will be shipped directly to our office.
JOIN OUR EFFORTS
Have some available time? We’d love to have you! We have several opportunities where you can help. Whether that is a couple of hours a month, or more availability each week, your time is essential in helping to make homelessness less frequent in our community.
We are so thankful for our partners!
This past month we were able to partner with The Promise Collective to help a client pay off an old water bill and move into her new apartment! The Promise Co is a new start-up church launching in January 2023! However, they are not waiting until 2023 to live out their core value of generosity! They are jumping in with both feet to meet the needs of those in Waco. At Throwing Aces, we believe doing small things well can change the world. We’re so thankful for The Promise Co and their similar vision of generosity! Changing Waco, one radical act of generosity at a time.
THANK YOU, PROMISE CO! WE APPRECIATE YOU!
