The homeless population in Dallas, Texas is up a bit according to recent reports, and many of those who are homeless choose to remain on the streets rather than seek temporary housing in shelters. The weather in Dallas is pretty warm year round, but winters can bring more than a few brutally cold days and nights. Temperatures in Dallas easily get into the hundreds in summer, and the heat index remains there way after summer is over. Many homeless fall victim to weather-related illnesses and often death from heat or extreme cold. The state works hard to combat homelessness, but with devastating storms and limited resources, it is a difficult battle. There is a Texas-based company who makes it part of its mission to help fight and win the battle of homelessness in Texas and across the nation.
Stream Energy is a direct-sales energy company that takes on homelessness first hand by providing resources to the homeless population in Dallas. Stream Energy works with other agencies like The Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity to provide housing and school supplies those in need.
Stream Energy supports local charitable organizations through their foundation Stream Cares. Their team of associates go out into the Dallas communities and hand out water, book bags, school supplies, hygiene kits to residents. The Stream Energy team also puts on hard hats and safety gear to help build housing for displaced residents.
Statistics have shown that when families have homes to raise their children, the high school graduation rates are much higher and there is an increase in higher education enrollment. Stream Energy works hard to ensure that families have the opportunity to restart their lives after homelessness. Homelessness can occur without notice from a devastating natural disaster or a sudden layoff from a company or industry closing. Stream Energy places people not profits at the heart of their energy business, and their efforts to rebuild Texas communities is an example to be followed.

James Larkin was both a labor leader and an Irish activist. He launched the labor group named the Irish Transport & General Workers’ Union. The organization went on to become the region’s largest labor union. Larkin was born in Liverpool, England, on January 21, 1876.
Raised in the slums, Larkin didn’t have much of a formal education. He worked numerous jobs to supplement the family income. He eventually took the job of foreman on the docks in Liverpool. He took an interest in socialism.
Larkin had other interests, too. He met Elizabeth Brown. They married in 1903. As time went on they would eventually become the proud parents of four sons.
He joined the National Union of Dock Labourers (NUDL). In 1905, just two years following his marriage, Larkin took on the full-time job of the trade union organizer. His reportedly rather militant methods of striking frequently was a concern of the labor organization. Learn more about Jim Larkin: http://spartacus-educational.com/IRElarkin.htm
This led to Larkin’s being transferred to Dublin, Ireland just two years later. It was there that he founded the ITGWU. Indeed, it was James Larkin’s dream to gather together every single skilled and unskilled industrial worker in the nation.
Larkin’s next move was to found the Irish Labour Party. He led a number of several strikes with the Irish Labour Party. The Dublin Lockout of 1913 is believed to be the most famous of them. Larkin headed more than 100,000 laborers on a strike that lasted for nearly eight months and finally won the men fair employment. Soon after this successful lockout, the ITGWU disbanded.
After World War I broke out, he launched a large anti-war protest. Additionally, in 1914 he traveled to the USA to solicit donations to aid in his conflict with the British. He was arrested in 1920 and found guilty of both communism and criminal anarchy.
Three years later, he was pardoned and deported back to Ireland. The following year Larkin founded the Workers’ Union of Ireland (WUI). He received official recognition from Communist International. He passed away on January 30, 1947, in Dublin, Ireland.
