The SoupMobile is the perfect manifestation of the ultimate truth that it's not what you say or think that makes the difference, it's what you do. At the SoupMobile everyone works hard to make a difference in the lives of people who cannot do for themselves, and provides opportunity in the form of a 'Hand Up' toward self sufficiency. Beginning as a volunteer and now as an office assistant I have seen the dedicated hard work up close. Genuine, positive, good people in a faith-based organization doing its best to provide a 'Hand Up' to those in need.

The Soupmpbile has made huge impact on my life
I myself had a destructive past
Where chances of employment was slim to none
Today I am a positive example of the amazing things the Soupmobile does in the streets of Dallas because I was given a HAND UP not hand out I was able to show I am responsible and couldn't have made it happen without the love of Christ working through David Timothy aka ( The Soup Man) executive director of the Soupmobile Today I am not only a proud member of The Soup Team. I have been with soupmobile 4 years now manager at the soupmobile thrift store .Speaking as a member of the Soupmpbile it's our Passion to help those less fortunate and it's so rewarding for me to show others how life can be turned around. Blessed

Ever since I was a little boy I felt that God wanted me to help the Homeless people in some way. I just did not know how. Then in 2009 I ended up in a homeless shelter. Through another organization I came to help out with the Soupmobile. There I found out the many different ways they help the homeless of Dallas. They fully believe in that verse in the bible that says Feed my Sheep. Not only do they feed them, they also have a housing program for singles as well as families. They all work together helping each other and forming friendships and bonds that last a lifetime. It is a wonderful team effort where they build each other up and those that were homeless have a place to stay and grow by serving their fellowman. Soupmobile's moto is "we are a hand up, not a hand out". Soupmobile is a great place to volunteer whether you are an individual or you represent an organization. I know from experience, it is fun and rewarding. If you want to volunteer just Contact David Toimothy by email at davidtimothy@soupmobile.org. Let him know when you can be available and he will send you all the details.

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.
