Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center

Welcome to the homepage for the Martin Luther King, Jr.
Community Center!

Our mission is to deliver the highest quality human, health, education, and other comprehensive services which enhance the quality of life of its users and provide a focal point for the community and its activities.

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center is part of the division of the City of Dallas Department of Housing/Community Services. The Center is located on 10.5 acres and is comprised of five separate buildings. Each facility offers a variety of services. This allows each facility to function independently; however, collectively they provide a comprehensive service delivery system. This unique method allows the citizens of Dallas to come to one location to meet their needs, ranging from health and medical, childcare and family counseling to educational needs and leisure activity.

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center is located at 2922 Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard, Dallas, TX 75215.  Our phone number is (214) 670-8418.
