Where We Serve

Where We Serve

As we feel called to serve the whole City of Dallas, our Team recognizes that the firepower behind community transformation lies within the aspirations and convictions of its leaders.  It is this firepower that Dallas Leadership Foundation works to fuel, ignite, and spread by identifying, cultivating and supporting local leaders that create flourishing in three areas: Neighborhoods, Prisons and Schools.


The aim of our Neighborhoods department is to equip local leaders in their efforts to reduce crime, increase community engagement, promote safety, and improve housing. Discover how we rally neighborhood leaders for city-wide impact.
