The Gideon Project

The Gideon Project is the brainchild of  Rev. Larry Walker. Pastor Walker is a servant leader who is experienced in community work and has a heart for working with under-resourced and non-resourced individuals. He specializes in working with the homeless. He is a program developer who has the ability engage the community to dig deep into root problems of homelessness. His unique perspective as a pastor, social worker, author, community organizer, and program developer has prepared him for the work of the Gideon Group. Pastor Larry has a vision that includes assembling a group of professionals who have a servant’s heart and are dedicated to improving the welfare of those without the physical resources to succeed in the community. The Gideon Group believes in the power of individuals who act in unison with a singular purpose. Our purpose is multi-faceted: (1)To maximize the gifts and resources of each servant in the Gideon Group. (2) To create a comprehensive program for homeless men and women that transforms their lives into meaningful substance. (3) To provide housing, direction, foundational growth, community integration, goal achievement and welfare measurement for those accepted into the program. (4) To expand the program (s) incrementally based upon individual and collective successes.

Our Vision:

To create an unparalleled space for homeless men and women in the Dallas area to transform their lives into productive community servants, resourceful and responsible men and women, who will be models of success.

Our Mission

 To identify and assist men and women in recovering the dignity necessary to achieve a self-sustaining exemplary existence.
