“…For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve…”
Best Buddies International is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization created to enrich the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).
With diversity and inclusion driving our vision, The Potter’s House of Dallas seeks to transform the lives of individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities (IDD).
In 2017, The Potter’s House of Dallas ignited a partnership with Best Buddies International, becoming the first church in the world to partner with the renowned organization. Collectively, we share a mutual vision to empower the IDD population in an environment conducive to positive outcomes. The Dallas Potter’s House Chapter of Best Buddies is excited to serve the IDD community. To this end, the pillars that have made Best Buddies International the phenomenal organization that it is today, including one-to-one friendships and leadership development, will be underscored throughout The Potter’s House Best Buddies initiative.
PROGRAMS & SUPPORT
Through customized programs and services, individuals with Down syndrome, autism, and other disabilities are empowered to live fulfilling lives. Every program and service is developed to evoke the greatest impact for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, as well as their families. To this end, there are monthly support groups for families of IDD children, so each member can leverage these networks to empower themselves, while encouraging others in the community. These support groups are segmented to address the specific needs of mothers, fathers, and siblings, as each relationship is unique.
COMMITMENT TO SERVICE
Chapter specific events allow members of The Potter’s House Dallas Chapter to interact within the ministry, as well as network outside of the chapter with others. Intellectual, developmental and disability education, awareness and support programs will continue to remain an ongoing focus. As the first and only church in the world to partner with Best Buddies International, The Potter’s House ministry is honored to serve those with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the North Texas area.
