People are always talking about how hard life is and of the accomplishments they've yet to achieve. I want to tell you about Pat Ford's achievements. She is a highly favored servant of God, Wife, mother, grandmother, missionary, volunteer, entrepreneur, and Founder of DCFI. She is fighting on the front lines in the southern sector of Dallas to help children and families to come out of the many facets of life that kept her down and out for a period of time in her life. Mrs. Ford knows all too well how setbacks and circumstances in life which you may have no control over may keep you from living life to your fullest potential which led her to create DCFI a non-profit organization that gives people a hand up in life. Poverty crime mental illness teen pregnancy Mrs. Ford has seen it all and now she is helping people out of the torment she is all too familiar with. Mrs. Ford started DCFI to give back to a community that is in much need of help. The community Mrs. Ford grew up in has the highest crime, HIV, teen pregnancy, and School dropout rates in Dallas. There is a ray of sunshine on the horizon beaming thru the thunderous clouds of lives. Mrs. Ford and DCFI seem to be a beam of hope this community needs. Offering after-school programs for children, parenting and GED classes. Domestic violence classes, public assistance. Starting a neighborhood association for the community in 2013.

I was 39 years old and a high school drop out. I have worked in the restaurant field because you don't need a high school diploma to work in day food. I joined DCFI's GED program in September 2012, classes where twice a week. I pass my GED test in March 2013 then I took a few college classes in business administration. Two years later I am a Site Administrator for a company that has locations in 62 countries. I owe my growth and confidence to DCFI ~ Jennifer Sanderfer

My experience with DCFI has been an unforgettable experience. First off I would like to announce how deeply grateful I am to have had the chance to work with such influential people. These people including the children, parents and staff who helped bring DCFI to its feet. The connection between the staff and children alone is nothing but genuine. I've learned plenty from the adults here, of course, however it was the children that have impacted me and left the greatest impression ever. This experience was awesome". ~ Destiny ~ Summer 2015
