-Behind Every Door Announces South Dallas Acquisition
DALLAS----Behind Every Door is pleased to announce the acquisition of the Village Oaks Apartment Community at 3550 Overton Road in South Dallas. Village Oaks is a 488-unit complex situated on 29+ acres.
“We hope to bring gifts like art, music, athletics, tutoring, and mentoring. We look forward to parties, activities and special events, too,” said Behind Every Door President Dean Wilson, “Our vision is to make Village Oaks a better place to live…any way we can.”
In conjunction with the acquisition of the property, Wilson announced the formation of “The 3550 Commission.” The newly formed commission will be made up of individuals interested in serving. The Commission will focus on safety and security, community partnerships, and improving overall life for the residents of Village Oaks.
Behind Every Door’s plan for Village Oaks includes the creation of an on-site Community Center, which will help launch the Village Oaks Kid’s Club. The Village Oaks Kid’s Club will focus on education and character building. Behind Every Door has additional plans to improve buildings and common areas, refurbish basketball courts, install a Community Clothing Closet, improve the Boxing Center, build a new playground and develop a Community Garden.
Behind Every Door looks forward to working with the City of Dallas’ Gateway Program (which currently houses 80+ friends at Village Oaks who have recently emerged from homelessness). The Gateway Program provides permanent supportive housing—supervised by on-site Case Managers. “The Gateway Program is a gift for so many friends without homes,” said Wilson, “We are thrilled to partner with the City of Dallas in providing housing and support.”
Wilson: “We invite all of our friends to join us in serving and making friends at Village Oaks. We believe we can be a part of bringing about transformation over time--and eventually impact the entire neighborhood.”-
