Ebby House Impacts Young Lives


Ebby House Impacts Young Lives

 

We love the above message, prominently displayed at the top of the staircase at The Ebby House. And, we couldn’t agree more.

 

Ebby House Impacts Young Lives

 

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.

 

Ebby House Impacts Young Lives

 

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.

 

Ebby House Impacts Young Lives

 

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.

“Deep Roots” contains 17 original pieces by Powell that delve into the history and culture of his upbringing, which influenced the artist in a profound way. Each work transports the viewer back in time with scenes of everyday rural life.

“This collection is a conversation between the medium and the subject matter,” Powell says. “The series is an eclectic mix of landscapes, seascapes and other reflections of my heritage growing up in East Texas.”

MEET THE ARTIST: Powell will be at the exhibition for a reception with visitors from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, September 1, at the Oak Lawn Library. The public is invited to attend the event and exhibit for free.

 

Powell, a graduate of Southern Methodist University, is a Dallas-based artist whose paintings explore subjects from a brave and candid perspective. The artist is thrilled to be showcasing his art within the Dallas community. His work has been featured at the Bath House Cultural Center (Dallas), The State Fair of Texas and The Lakewood Library, which features works of noteworthy and upcoming artists. Powell’s work has been frequently awarded and recognized, most recently at the 2018 Lakewood Library Annual Exhibition, and he is available for commissioned-art requests.

Trees Add Beauty, Value to Your Home


Trees Add Value, Beauty to Your Home

 3625 Ranchero | $6,750,000 | The O’Gorman Group

Trees don’t ask for much — dirt, water, sunlight. Yet they provide many benefits for you and your home: They add beauty and value to your property, cut your energy bills with the shade they provide, provide a home to wildlife, and improve the air you breathe.

 

Trees Add Beauty, Value to Your Home

5323 Swiss Ave. | $3,700,000 | Kay Weeks

To get the full benefits from your trees, choose the right one and plant it in the right location. Planting a tree that sheds its leaves annually on the west side of your house provides cooling shade in the summer. In winter, after it loses its leaves, the same tree will let in sunlight that cuts heating bills.

 

Trees Add Beauty, Value to Your Home

9505 Inwood Road | $3,100,000 | Cindy Solice

If you’re planting a new tree, think about its fully grown size and shape before you dig. Roots too close to your home could damage the foundation or block sewer lines. The wrong tree in the wrong place could actually lower your home’s appraised value.
