We’re days away from Praise in the Park! We hope you plan on attending. Praise in the Park is one of Dallas Leadership Foundation’s signature events that gives the community an opportunity to celebrate those who have gone through our DLF Reentry program. We’ve befriended, baptized, shared Bible lessons, mentored and supported men while they’ve been incarcerated. For example, to date, we have an 8.3 percent recidivism rate among the men who’ve participated in our program.

The stats show the results of DLF Reentry: We’ve served 3,000 men and women incarcerated or formerly incarcerated through our comprehensive program in and outside of prison facilities. Fifty percent of men who stay in our transitional facility, Onesimus House, maintain employment for more than a year.

As you can see, we have lots to celebrate with the formerly incarcerated and their families this coming Saturday. Come out and support these leaders who have demonstrated their commitment to dedicate their lives to God, their families, and communities. 

Praise in the Park starts at 11 a.m. in Jubilee Park and ends at 4 p.m. Smokey John’s Bar-be-cue & Home Cooking is catering.
