At SUPERIORHIRE, the best of Dallas Staffing & Recruiting agencies; we have been blessed beyond our expectations and we believe that it is incumbent on us to give back to the community as a result of these great blessings. Frederick Buechner, American writer and theologian says this about our calling;
“The place God calls you to is where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.”
At SUPERIORHIRE, we are involved with the following organizations and embrace the principles for which they stand. We are committed to promoting human well-being and doing our part to reduce the burdens of poverty, homelessness, sex-trafficking and poor working and living conditions of the women and children in Dallas and Collin Counties.
THE AGAPE RESOURCE & ASSISTANCE CENTER
The mission of Agape is to provide critical Housing and Life Skills that empower single women and their children to transform from Homelessness, Crisis and Poverty to Self-Sustaining, Fulfilling Lives. Their focus is first to serve children and youth to break the poverty cycle and second; to support families in crisis and facilitate permanent change for all. Agape offers hope for women who are in crisis.
Clifford Stewart, Managing Partner of SUPERIORHIRE, serves on the Board of Directors of Agape and has been working with Janet Collinsworth, Executive Director of Agape, from its inception. For the past two years, SUPERIORHIRE has purchased vehicles for women who are in the Agape program, transportation that is so vital to their lives in this area. To learn more about Agape, click here.
SEVEN LOAVES FOOD PANTRY AND COMMUNITY CENTER
North Texas is one of the wealthiest parts of the United States, but ironically, we also have one of the highest hunger rates in the country. In Collin County alone, there are more than 100,000 people — half of whom are children — who don’t know where their next meal will come from. Eligible individuals and families are able to obtain healthy food as a grocery supplement once a month from Seven Loaves Food Pantry and Community Center at St. Andrew United Methodist Church in Plano. One-time emergency food distribution is also available without regard to residency. In addition to food, Seven Loaves Food Pantry and Community Center also provides: free, gently used clothing; basic hygiene items; Food 4 Kids; assistance accessing available county social services; and periodic needs such as school supplies. In addition, more than 43,000 lunches are provided during summers off from school to children in need.
The owners, and employees of SUPERIORHIRE volunteer their time and resources to help the Seven Loaves Food Pantry and Community Center provide more than 35,000 weeks’ worth of healthy food to our neighbors in need. To learn more about Seven Loaves Food Pantry and Community Center, click here.

THE SOCIETY FOR HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT
SHRM and their conferences provide HR professionals from around the world with the best human resources education available. Programs serve the needs of thousands of HR professionals in an atmosphere of learning, networking, inspiration, collaboration, and engagement. The annual HR Southwest (HRSW) conference held in Fort Worth every October was an early focus of SUPERIORHIRE President, Lynne Stewart’s, dating back many years. Her service on the Education Committee for HRSW for five years gave her a perspective on just how influential SHRM has been in the lives and careers of thousands of HR professionals.
The staff members of SUPERIORHIRE are encouraged to give back their time and talent in service that provides such great knowledge to our industry. To learn more about HRSW, click here.
WOMEN WITH PROMISE
In 2013, a diverse group of talented and successful business women came together and decided they wanted to do more to make a difference in North Texas. The vision of Women with Promise (“WWP”) is to empower women to build a future filled with promise and success.
WWP supports area agencies that resonate with our vision and mission to give a hand up to women and, in turn, also help their families. We look for organizations that have needs we can immediately address and gives us the opportunity to meet, mentor and celebrate the strength and character of women.
“When I think how blessed we are and the power we have to help others, I thank God to live a life of service and serve him on this board by giving back. One statistic that has continued to shock me is there are over 3,000 young women and children who don’t have a safe place to live and to call their home and we’re honored to serve them by WWP supporting the Agape Resource & Assistance Center,” says Lynne Stewart, President of SUPERIORHIRE and founding board member of Women With Promise.
