The NDECPTA connects local families through learning and play to
foster growth at home and in our community.
Each year the NDECPTA supports several local community organizations through fundraising and service activities.
Some of our current community recipients are:
Community Partners of Dallas - www.cpdtx.org
Community Partners of Dallas (CPD) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to ensuring safety and restoring hope and dignity to abused and neglected children by providing resources and support to the caseworkers of Dallas County Child Protective Services.
Pajama Program - www.pajamaprogram.org
Pajama Program is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides new pajamas and storybooks. Snuggling up in cozy, new pajamas with their very own new book, these children are given a secure and nurturing “good night” at bedtime.
Vogel Alcove - www.vogelalcove.org
Children experiencing homelessness are four times more likely than their peers to show delayed development, and one in six homeless children has emotional disturbances. 25% of homeless preschool children have mental health problems that require clinical evaluation, and by age 8, one in three homeless children will have a mental disorder.
Vogel Alcove intervenes with children at this critical time in brain development, providing trauma-informed care that helps to counteract the effects of homelessness and put them on a path to success in school.
Genesis Women’s Shelter & Support - www.genesisshelter.org
Genesis Women’s Shelter seeks to end the epidemic of domestic violence against women and children by stopping individual victimization and reducing the devastating impact of family violence through safety, shelter and expert services to battered women and their children.
The NDECPTA supports Genesis Women’s Shelter by serving a Saturday morning breakfast and holding donation drives at selected general meetings.
Hope Supply Co. - http://hopesupplyco.org/
The mission of Hope Supply Co. is to meet the critical needs of homeless children across North Texas by providing necessities such as clothing, school supplies, toys and programs to enhance their lives.
This year, the NDECPTA will support Hope Supply Co. via a diaper donation drive in September.
SPCA of Texas - www.spca.org
The SPCA is the most comprehensive and longest-serving animal welfare agency in North Texas. Their mission is to provide every animal exceptional care and a loving home.
The NDECPTA collects donations for the dogs in need and host an "Adopt-a-Dog" event in partnership with the SPCA.
