What We Do

Although Dallas Junior Forum members are firmly committed to raising money to fund our service projects each year, our primary focus is sharing our time and talents through volunteering. Dallas Junior Forum is very much a “hands-on” volunteer organization.

Each year we prepare more than 9,000 meals:

  • at Ronald McDonald House of Dallas for the families of sick children being treated in area hospitals
  • at Hope’s Door/ New Beginnings shelter for women and children affected by domestic violence, and 
  • at The Family Place shelter for women and children affected by domestic violence.

Each month we conduct themed bingo games and provide companionship to the elderly residents of Juliette Fowler Communities.  We also provide annual holiday parties complete with treats, gifts, singing and entertainment. 

At Ebby House, Dallas Junior Forum sponsors and furnishes bedrooms for the young women residing there who were formerly in foster homes.  We mentor them in life skills and career planning.  We also sponsor holiday and birthday parties for the young women.

Each year we give our time, talents and compassion to the national Crimes Against Children Conference presented by Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center as well as volunteer our time in the DCAC administrative offices. Our grants support scholarships for local Child Advocacy professionals to attend the conference.

We help staff The Family Place Resale Store, assist Frisco Family Services in their food pantry and resale store, and at provide welcome bags of emergency toiletries and clothing for families fleeing domestic violence. Our volunteers help staff fundraisers at each of our partner agencies.

Our annual spring fundraiser, DJF Celebrates, is a principal source of funds for our in-kind docations and our Grants Program that annually distributies monies to area 501(c)(3) non-profits that serve children, families and the elderly.  In addition, we supply non-grant funding to deserving charities on an ad hoc basis when needs arise.
