I'm SORRY if I burst anyone's bubble concerning the Soupmobile. If it's founder had stayed with serving food to the homeless via his mobile soup kitchen and with his Homeless Village concept most all would be cool and I would give him an above average rating of about B. Even though I do NOT believe the huge numbers he continues to report on how many meals he serves to the homeless on an annual basis. I dare ANYONE to follow the Soupmobile around for a whole week and you'll soon determine that he fudging his numbers. His numbers are inflated - I have no doubt. Also, here's my BIGGEST GRIPE against the founder. In 2005, he actually stole a Christmas Event at the Hyatt hotel that was lovingly created and produced by a formerly homeless person for 8 years. He brazenly stole this charity event via lies and cruelness towards this formerly homeless person. This Christmas Eve event has gone onto huge success for the Soupmobile the last eight even though the homeless creator is never mentioned or recognized for being the creator. Therefore, anyone with an ounce of decency would have to use the gift of discernment in judging how credible its founder really is. He comes across as being genial and sincere but you'll also hear people say behind his back that he's a narcissist. And, as proof, don't dare challenge any of his decisions as he has an explosive temper that borders on the ridiculous. However, his lowest act of all was when he stole his successful Christmas Event from a formerly homeless person. That, to me, was unforgivable. And the media and others in Dallas know the whole story but they continue to cover for this crook. Sorry, it's an honest review from personal experience.

The SoupMobile is the most rewarding volunteering I have ever done. The best part is being right there with the homeless to hug them, talk with them, and just simply love them. I have learned so much by serving the homeless. Their boundless faith leaves me humbled. I am so grateful to David Timothy, a.k.a. SoupMan, for this amazing opportunity.

Volunteers always have the same reaction...this is a fun place to work and everyone is so nice. That has been my experience as well. I had a passion for cooking and homeless people and started volunteering at the SoupMobile because they were they only non-profit that actually called me back. No matter what assignment they give me for the day, I do the work and am blessed because of it, knowing that I am giving to people in need. David Timothy, the SoupMan, is an amazing individual who truly appreciates everyone's hard work and makes it a great place to volunteer. They exist to give people a hand UP, not just a hand out and they show so much love in the process.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

personal growth and appreciation for what I do possess and showing love to those who need it most.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The people and the work...it's fun!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

so friendly from all backgrounds.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

House every homeless person in all of Dallas and then some.
