The Wilkinson Center transforms the lives of Dallas families by providing pathways to self-sufficiency with dignity and respect. 

Food Assistance and Social Services are often the first points of contact with their Center.  Through their food pantries and other emergency services, they provide food, financial and other basic assistance, so that families can begin to use their independence-enhancing programs. Food Pantry clients are referred to Social Services where professional case managers identify the barriers clients face and develop individualized plans to overcome specific challenges. While providing additional basic services (such as securing government benefits), case managers assess client needs and match them with programs offered by the Center or one of their many collaborative partners. Program:Adult EducationBudget: NaNCategory: Population Served: Poor/Economically Disadvantaged, Indigent, General Program Description:  Education is fundamental to overcoming poverty, and the Wilkinson Center’s educational programs provide a path to self-reliance and financial independence.

At the Wilkinson Center, their clients choose from an array of work and life skill classes tailored to meet adults’ immediate and long-term needs. Through Case Management planning, adults leverage their services to gain skills that give them the ability to become financially independent and break the cycle of poverty. Currently, more than 315 adults a month are enrolled in their programs which include CareerWorks, Financial Literacy, General Educational Development (GED), English as a Second Language (ESL), and Computer Literacy.Program:Child Education (CLIMB)Budget: NaNCategory: Population Served: Children Only (5 - 14 years) Program Description: CLIMB stands for Changing Lives, Improving Minds & Bodies, and CLIMB UP! for Unlimited Potential.
