The mission of the Dallas Champions Academy is to help impoverished Dallas Children and youth live into their full purpose and potential.
Dallas Texas has the highest rate of childhood poverty in the nation. Right now in Dallas 300,000 children go to be hungry.
Poverty also impacts other areas of the lives of these children and threatens there future as:
Less than 10% of DISD seniors are ready for college
90% of children have no father in the home
70% of children report feeling unsafe in their own homes
The Dallas Champions Academy is dedicated to providing a life-changing experience to help break the cycle of poverty for our children and youth
