Carter's House provides children and their families with low-cost school and professional, parental support programs, and holistic self-sufficiency programming that improves confidence and success for the whole family.
WHO WE ARE
Carter's House assists families that do not meet the housing criteria required by many assistance programs in most school districts. Customers have to provide current proof of receipt of state benefits.
Carter's House was founded in 2013 to help families that were in the same situation she and her family were in when they moved to the area. Putting two children in school, when she started, we thought this would be an occasional uniform given out. Yet, as the seven years have progressed, we have seen a real need for our service in the community, and we are excited to help our community be a better place.
Carter's House, headquartered in the Martin Luther King, Jr Community Center in Dallas, Texas, assists families with children ages 0-18 (up to 21 if enrolled in a state-accredited high school) in North Texas, although their annual events open to all.
