DALLAS FIGHTS POVERTY
The Anti-Poverty Coalition of Greater Dallas was formed to united the entire community around identifying and eliminating barriers preventing families from moving out of poverty and into financial stability. By 2020, the Coalition wants to move 250,000 more people out of poverty permanently. Both Catholic Charities and the Diocese of Dallas are members of this local coalition.
Predatory Lending is a big problem across North Texas. In 2011 collaborative efforts of the Anti-Poverty Coalition resulted in 4,000 petition signatures and letters from community leaders urging the city of Dallas to take local action. Two strong ordinances were passed and our work continues in finding viable alternatives.
