CATCHES + CONNECTS

____

The Net is a nonprofit in Fort Worth that exists to empower the city to restore dignity to those in poverty through community & relationships. Our goal is to see the people we serve walk in freedom and joy as whole individuals.

Safety Net + Network

Safety Net
The Safety NET serves to create long-term support systems that help restore individuals to emotional, spiritual, and social wholeness. We believe that through relationships we can instill hope, which gives birth to empowerment and self-sufficiency, and which inevitably leads to transformation.
Network
The NETwork is a connected system of volunteers, churches, businesses, schools, professionals, and other non-profits within Fort Worth. The NETwork is our way of empowering and assisting the local church in an effort to connect and serve the marginalized of Fort Worth through holistic relationships.

 

  • we all fall. some fast. some hard.
    others only stumble.

     

    most of us have some sort of net, made up of family and friends to catch us when we fall.

  • they help us back on our feet, whether it be financially, emotionally or spiritually.

     

    it is often the case that people find themselves in poverty when they don't have a net.

  • though they may fall no harder
    than you or I,

     

    they lack the support of family and friends to catch them and put them back on their feet.
