This year marks a very special year for SouthFair CDC. We turn 30 years old and are kissing our 20’s goodbye!
Even though the pandemic limits the rules of celebration we can still acknowledge the many years of hard work and dedication from SouthFair.
A little history and then some…
SouthFair Community Development Corporation was established October 1, 1991 by Linda (Walker) Bender. Linda had the foresight and vision to create a nonprofit that would become the backbone of people first housing and economic development for low to moderate families in the South Dallas/Fair Park area, in particular the Jeffries-Meyers neighborhood.
With our latest additions, SouthFair has brought 55 families, 22-in house apartment units, 350+ multi-family units, and 30 senior units to the Fair Park area! A win for individuals, families, community, and for the city Dallas!
The year long celebration…
The work doesn’t end there. With our one-on-one counseling, credit education, and monthly follow-ups, clients can prepare to know what it means to be a homeowner, meet lender requirements, and understand down payment assistance programs that are available to them. While we wait to safely meet in person again, our online informational sessions can be found on our YouTube page – SouthFair CDC.
Over the years, SouthFair and the community have relished in good times and strived to continue moving forward in slower times. With close to thirty years of experience, SouthFair has served thousands of clients from all areas of the Dallas Metroplex. SouthFair continues to do the work in the community that Linda is so passionate about.
This year, SouthFair is raising $30,000 for 30 years of service!
