Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas welcomes Trinity River Mission, at 2060 Singleton Blvd in Dallas, into the fold as its newest Club serving the West Dallas community.
Trinity River Mission approached Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas earlier this year with a proposal to join forces with the national organization so it could further its mission to support the students of West Dallas.
“We strongly believe that we will be able to serve the kids in our community best as part of Boys & Girls Clubs, the nation’s most respected and well-established program for underserved youth,” said former Trinity River Mission Director Jazmine Lewis. “We have been in West Dallas for more than 30 years and we hope families here will welcome the change and enjoy the benefits of being part of this larger organization.”
Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas began operations in November 1965 with the opening of the West Dallas Boys Club. It has since grown to one of the nation’s largest and most successful Boys & Girls Clubs organizations in the nation, serving more a membership base of more than 6,300 kids annually.
The organization provides programs based on physical, emotional, cultural and social needs, and offers diverse program activities in three areas: academic success, good character & citizenship, and healthy lifestyles.
The new organization will offer members the opportunity to enjoy the full array of services and programs that include a safe place to learn and grow, ongoing relationships with caring, adult professionals, life-enhancing programs and character development experiences.
“We share a deep affinity with Trinity River Mission’s passion for serving families and helping kids reach their full potential,” said Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas CEO Charles English. “We welcome their community into the fold and look forward to becoming a positive influence on the kids who Trinity River Mission have served so well.”
