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 living independently.
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.

The phrase “East Dallas Is …” has been making the rounds on social media for a while now as excitement built as to just what the Big Reveal about this special and unique part of Dallas might be. Today we know: East Dallas is the Lake & Garden District.
At Ebby Halliday, we love the newly revealed logo and we love that it grew out of an organic community project that involved many people who are passionate about their community.
Says Darlene Ellison, a lifelong resident of East Dallas and a longtime leader in the community, “In planning for the future of East Dallas, we believe that drawing recognition toward the area will not only bring greater traffic to local businesses, but it will also assist with enhancing our top-notch schools, maintaining strong property values, and bring an increased awareness of our eclectic, diverse community.”
At Ebby Halliday, we couldn’t agree more. We’re proud of our deep East Dallas roots and equally proud to be the only real estate company sponsor of “East Dallas Is.”
Whether you live in East Dallas, are considering a move there, or just admire a community with a whole lot of spirit and soul, we encourage you to support this unique part of Dallas. If you’re visiting, stay awhile – you’ll be glad you did.
