How We Help

During the unprecedented year of the corona virus pandemic, DSF reorganized quickly to find new and innovative ways to provide service and support to our agency partners.

Dallas Service Forum gives monies to their partner agencies to help them recover from the recent winter storm.
The annual DSF fund raising auction was forced to go virtual. Monies raised allowed us to provide $25,000 in emergency assistance to agencies for storm damage relief.
