One of Filling The Void’s founders is a licensed minister. This license was granted to Kelly Swan by The Church at Battle Creek in January 2005.

Volunteers with Filling The Void Dallas have completed the city’s Homeless Feeding Food Safety training course that is conducted by the Department of Code Compliance.

Our Denver ministry maintains a certificate of good standing with Colorado’s office of the Secretary of State.

In 2017, we also received a permit from the Houston Health Department’s Charitable Health Services Bureau to begin conducting work among the city’s homeless.

On a more informal note, a representative with the Tulsa Health Department also peeked, prodded and picked through one of our bags a few years back, only to find non-perishable items and a sandwich prepared by Arby’s.
