South Dallas

Employment Project

A Strategic Approach to Serve Opportunity Populations


The South Dallas Employment Project is a true collaboration of 140+ non-profit and for profit organizations, including the City of Dallas, committed to providing opportunity populations with job and life skills, education programming, mental health counseling and addiction treatment that will help individuals overcome some of the challenges they face upon re-entering their communities.

Although we know that a livable wage is important, it is also important to provide support for success and the opportunity for positive integration into the community. With varied experiences, educational and income levels, all have something to bring to the community.


We want those we serve to become contributors to their community. By making them aware of the available resources, we can help them establish a deeper connection to their neighborhoods as a place that has reinvested in them.
