Community Outreach

The Dallas Woman’s Forum’s members are women of all ages, races and religions who share a common goal: to work together to improve our local community socially, physically, culturally, and educationally.

Our initiatives reflect the dedication to these founding principles.

  • Support the teachers, parent volunteers, and children of the Landauer ChildCareGroup
    Provide school supplies and teacher snacks to Birdie Alexander Elementary school
    Contribute hygiene items, supplies, and other requested items to local charities through the Member meeting “Bring It” program
    Provide meeting space at the Alexander Mansion for local nonprofits though the Community Share Program

 

The Landauer ChildCareGroup Center

The Landauer ChildCareGroup Center, located next to The Dallas Woman’s Forum, serves three-to-five-year-olds from nearby families of limited income.

Since 1901, ChildCareGroup (Originally the Clara Chaison Free Kindergarten and Training School) has known that the first years of life are critical to human development. Children who don’t have a strong, early learning foundation begin school behind and often stay behind and lose precious opportunities for achieving their full potential.

The Landauer Center provides children with the foundation of skills and knowledge they need to be successful in school and life and fosters self-reliant families and communities. Located on Munger Street behind The Dallas Woman’s Forum the Landauer Center was licensed in 1986, and is now part of Head Start of Greater Dallas.

The Forum has partnered with Landauer to enrich their curricula by funding various activities for the children and their parents.

During the December holiday season, the children enjoy a Holiday goodie bag and new pajamas. At Easter time, the front lawn of The Dallas Woman’s Forum is filled with the children, teachers and parents for an egg hunt and games. At the end of the school year, those children graduating to kindergarten are presented with kindergarten-related books to take home. From school supplies and books to toys and jammies, the Forum continues to respond to specific requests from the Landauer ChildCareGroup Center as need arises.

Member “Bring It” Program

A charitable organization is selected to coincide with each member meeting. Based on the needs of the organization, members are asked to “Bring” the requested items to the member meeting for donation. Some past recipients have included Meals on Wheels, Magdalen House and CASA.
