A word from the Manager
The Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center has increased community outreach by supporting and coordinating community events and collaborating with outside agencies and corporations.
Increased number of visitors to the Center currently exceeds 29,000 per month. Most receive services from one of more than 25 agencies providing services at the Center. The Center is consistently achieving an 88% satisfaction rating or greater each month.
The Center’s Social-Services Program year-to-date provided 1063 citizens with financial assistance. Total funds used from existing accounts for the general public are $224,456.28 for FY2008-2009. The Social-Services Program consistently exceeds a 100% satisfaction rating.
The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Recreation Center recently hosted a Job Fair for ex-offenders that attracted more than 5,000 visitors to the Center. This unique job fair was the vision of the Texas Alliance for the Formerly Incarcerated and 97.9 The Beat Radio Station.
I thank our staff and supporters for your hard work and determination to provide the best programs possible to the City of Dallas and the community we serve!!!!!
