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 aged out of foster care 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 from foster care to independent living.
Every year, about 1,500 young Texans age out of the foster care system. Before the age of 21, many of them face severe outcomes due to lack of family and adult connections. The Ebby House seeks to reverse that trend by offering young women a home to live in and mentors to love them while they learn to become self-reliant, entrepreneurial — volunteers and mentors themselves — reflecting the values and life of our company’s founder, Ebby Halliday.
