Welcome to ORC!

Words from Roger D. McCasland, President

As President and Chairman of the Board for Operation Relief Center, I hope our website will give you a picture of the truly extraordinary work of Operation Relief Center & Operation Relief Community Development Corporation.

We consider it a blessing to own and operate housing for the benefit of low-income, veterans, homeless, and formerly homeless people in Texas. We also serve as providers for many other areas of assistance for the low income community of Dallas. We administer a range of supportive service programs to assist those we serve in maintaining stable housing and increasing their self-sufficiency.

For 23 years we have sought to address the Biblical mandate to help those less fortunate. For the thousands of lives that have been changed for the better by our work, would not have been possible without the tireless work of our volunteers, staff, board of directors, both past and present, and most importantly our wonderful supporters who have given to us so generously over the years. Without these people and our contributors we simply could not do all that we do.

We pray this website will assist you and that our efforts will continue to be blessed by God as we have the opportunity to help others. We continually pray for wisdom from HIM as we move forward in our daily endeavors.

John 12:12-13 The crowd waved their palm leaves and stood in history as "The Holy Week", a week when they ushered Jesus into Jerusalem saying "Hosanna". Just days later, they shouted "Crucify Him!"

I'm not sure if you've been in another country, or seen how crowds can gather quickly to declare a protest, or produce a "Human Wall" to stand for something they feel very strongly about. I have never been in that kind of situation as a participant, but I have seen in person what kind of price it cost some to say, "I have been treated unfair", or, "No, my government is unfit to lead...
