Teenagers who age out of the Foster Care system often end up homeless. The Ebby House makes sure they have a safe home and learn the life skills needed to be happy, independent adults. Come learn about the program at the Oak Cliff Lions Club Wednesday September 14, 2016 at the Weiss Auditorium on Colorado Boulevard.

The Public is invited to attend the Oak Cliff Lions Club Meeting Wednesday, September 14, 2016

Learn how to help the young women of The Ebby House, Teens who have aged out of the Foster Care System

Lisa Mumford, the live-in house manager for The Ebby House, will be the Oak Cliff Lions Club Program Speaker on Wednesday, September 19, 2016.

The Program meeting is open to the public. Lunch is $9.50. The club meets at the Weiss Auditorium on the Methodist Medical Campus located at: 1441 N Beckley Ave, Dallas, TX 75203.

Ms. Mumford will discuss “doing life” with the young women who come to the Ebby House.

To Mumford, it means learning and growing together while sharing stories, struggles and goals.

At the Ebby House, all women are required to create goals that they will work toward for the duration of their two-year program.

The Ebby House has its own goal for the women who are accepted into the program: to leave with the tools necessary to be self-sufficient, successful individuals. This ultimate vision for each woman is driven by a perpetual push for education.

Ms. Mumford will discuss her position at the house and how the community can support the residents there.
