Organization: Mercy Street
Issue: The nonprofit organization needed to improve facilities to achieve a mission to mentor the future leaders of West Dallas.
TREC Contribution: A $50,000 TREC Foundation grant went toward renovations to the library, multi-purpose room and main hallway. Donations of In-kind goods totaled $101,355 and pro-bono professional services worth $143,014 brought the total project value to almost $300,000.
Impact: The improved physical space reinforced the idea of excellence, one of Mercy Street’s core values. Raising the bar on the facilities complemented the high expectations Mercy Street maintains for its young clientele.
