We love the above message, prominently displayed at the top of the staircase at The Ebby House. And, we couldn’t agree more.
The Ebby House is an innovative transitional community for young women who have experienced foster care or have been abandoned, displaced or abused. Located at Juliette Fowler Communities in Dallas’ Lakewood neighborhood (which we also love!) The Ebby House serves young women ages 18-24 as they make the transition to adulthood and independence.
Every year, about 1,500 young Texans age-out of the foster care system. Others moved out of the foster care system before reaching the age of 18. Many face severe outcomes due to lack of family and adult connections.
The Ebby House program seeks to reverse negative trends and outcomes faced by these young women by offering them a home to live in and mentors to love them while they learn to become self-reliant and entrepreneurial – volunteers and mentors themselves – which is reflective of the values and life of Ebby Halliday, our company’s founder.
