Community Council of Greater Dallas

Since its founding in 1940, the Community Council has been dedicated to enhancing the quality of life in North Texas, enabling each individual to achieve his or her full potential.

The Community Council determines priority and issues solutions in the human services arena, convenes partners to significantly impact service delivery, and increases awareness of and access to services. In total, the agency serves over 500,000 requests per year for social services of all types.

Community Council is also the home of the Dallas Area Agency on Aging, which encompasses numerous services for seniors and the disabled including MyRIDE Dallas, Texas Healthy at Home, and local implementation of an evidence-based strategic partnership with Stanford University for chronic disease management.

Community Council is the lead agency for a highly successful Community Youth Development Program, which targets post-secondary readiness and crime prevention and also provides the local area 2-1-1 Information Referral Service. In addition, the agency provides healthcare navigator services for Enroll Texas, CHIP / Children's Medicaid, and a number of behavioral health interventions for youth, seniors, and working families.

You can volunteer as a mentor to seniors, youth or college student; join a coalition group; or become an advisory board member.

The Community Impact Awards Luncheon in November recognizes top leaders and agencies who are positively making a difference in our communities. To become an event sponsor or to purchase a table, please contact events@ccadvance.org.
