Children, Family & Senior Services

We serve nearly 25,000 people within Greater Dallas every year, and part of that footprint includes several regional centers, which allow us to provide specialized services needed by a particular community or group of people.

Brady Senior Center

The Brady Senior Center provides resources that promote socialization, wellness and self-sufficiency for the rapidly growing senior population.  The center offers daily nutritious meals, food boxes, health education, case management, counseling, transportation, exercise programs and social activities.

Cardinal Farrell Community Center

Cardinal Farrell Community Center offers inter-generational education, recreation, sports, and community-based services for low-income families in West Dallas and West Oak Cliff.

Pregnancy Counseling & Adoption Services

CCD provides pro-life options counseling to clients facing an unplanned pregnancy.  Our Infant Adoption program provides basic needs assistance of diapers, clothing and formula and access to parenting education resources.  The Finally Home program educates and prepares couples interested in adopting a child to provide a forever home for older children available for adoption through Child Protective Services (CPS).

School Readiness Programs

Together We Learn, a preschool education program for low-income children and their parent (or caregiver) offered 5 days a week. The children receive high-quality early education enrichment while their parents participate in ESL classes and other programs to develop the skills needed to achieve economic stability.  Together We Learn is offered at Cardinal Farrell Community Center and CCD Bachman Lake.

We also provide a no cost After-School program at Cardinal Farrell Community Center for children ages pre-school through 7th grade which offers a STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) based curriculum designed to help each child reach their highest potential.
