About Friendship House

Friendship House, a relief ministry sponsored by First Baptist Church of Garland, in conjunction with local churches and community organizations, was organized in 1977 to help meet the physical needs of those who were out of work, physically disabled, or low income for a variety of reasons and circumstances. With the help of many volunteers, it reaches out to as many as 175 families per week.

Friendship House will be closed Thursday, November 25 and Friday, November 26 in observance of Thanksgiving.  Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!
