With a desire to give back, CGI’s Dallas passport processing team came together to organize a community service project, choosing the Dallas Genesis Women’s Shelter as its beneficiary.

Established in 1985, the shelter serves more than 1,000 women and children each year. A wide range of services are provided, including emergency and transitional housing, counseling, trauma recovery, day care, onsite schooling, parenting classes, job readiness classes, domestic violence education and legal services. 

The Dallas team collected 18 boxes full of small household appliances, tableware, bedding, toiletries, clothes, beauty supplies, paper goods, and school supplies to help the shelter provide for victims of domestic abuse. 

“We chose this organization because the families who walk through the shelter’s doors are escaping unspeakable violence,” says Debora Blevins, a team supervisor in the Dallas facility. “Our goal is to provide resources to help them break free and move on with their lives. The shelter was very thankful for everything they received, and we look forward to doing more in the future.” 

CGI’s Dallas passport processing team is part of a large U.S. passport and visa practice that processes 14 million U.S. passport applications each year, handling inquiries, applications and passport delivery. Internationally, the practice also provides assistance to U.S. passport applications in 62 countries.
