Dallas Leadership Foundation was founded in 1995 to glorify Christ by addressing the root issue facing challenged communities—the lack of leadership.
By focusing on systematic leadership development built on a foundation of genuine love and respect for people, our deepening relationships within Dallas' neighborhoods turned our hope for sustainable change from a mere dream into a reality. Today we serve as a bedrock for collaborative community transformation.
DLF’s mission is accomplished by staff with over 20 years of experience serving people in need. The team works out of three main departments: DLF Neighborhoods, DLF Reentry, and DLF Youth.
Our Mission:To identify, affirm, and develop leaders to transform communities.
Theory of Change: To create long-term change in communities by developing a critical mass of local and resourced leaders to serve in neighborhoods, prisons, and schools.
