DFWAE Charity Partnership 2020

Our Friends Place helps young women break generational cycles of abuse, neglect, poverty and homelessness through empowering self-reliance and independence.


DFWAE’s support helps young women ages 12-24 who experience homelessness or unstable housing in North Texas. Our Friends Place’s Transitional Living Centers (TLCs) provide a home, case management, and life skills that stress the importance of education, career, and financial stability to build a brighter future. These life skills are translated into the SOAR to Success homeless prevention program for at-risk youth in high school, college, or part of programs with partner agencies in North Texas. As of August 2020, they have served more young women already than in any previous year.

Please support Our Friends Place’s signature fundraising event – Our Friends Place Annual Gala & Auction on October 17, 2020 – to benefit our programs for homeless and at-risk youth in DFW. Donations to Our Friends Place create a space for young women away from the chaos of homelessness, poverty, and abuse.

There are two ways to support Our Friends Place!
