Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Every child should be valued, nurtured and loved. But, behind closed doors, there are children who are forgotten, neglected and abused. Only a select few should go into these dark and fragile places. We cannot follow them, but when innocent, vulnerable children are hurt, we cannot and will not stand by. We are here, every day, with what abused and neglected children need for the first steps to healing, and to encourage and equip their guides on the journey. Together, we will make their childhoods safe again, show them they are treasured, and fill their futures with possibility.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Child abuse and neglect are urgent and widespread problems that traumatize children and can overwhelm even those with resources and the best intentions to help them.

When innocent, vulnerable children are being abused and neglected, we cannot and will not stand by. We must act.

We provide for the immediate and urgent needs of children removed from situations of abuse and neglect.

Community Partners of Dallas is where anyone can make an immediate and meaningful difference in the life of an abused and neglected child. We utilize more than 3,000 volunteers annually to provide what abused children urgently need today to thrive tomorrow.

No child should ever experience abuse or neglect, but these are rampant problems that demand a community-wide response. Community Partners of Dallas is the nonprofit where anyone in the Dallas community can play a meaningful part in the solution.

Together, with individuals, businesses and organizations, we provide for the immediate and urgent needs of abused and neglected children in Dallas County. These are things like a car seat for a ride to safety, funding for therapy or support and encouragement for Child Protective Services caseworkers, who are lifelines for abused and neglected children. These small rays of hope are essential for healing
and can begin to transform a child’s life.

  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
