Citizens Committee to Save Our Children Inc

A nonprofit organization

CCSOC has reached out and gained support from many established institutions in the Dallas Fort Worth area. We have obtained a following in the neighborhood of over ten thousand volunteers, sponsors and fans. Social media numbers are climbing and are adding new followers' every day. CCSOC can reach one million dollars after five additional years of positive productivity. The future milestones CCSOC sets to accomplish are basic yet promising. We plan to employ over twenty people for different projects and productions. We also plan to recruit a vast amount of students into to the Scholarship and Mentorship program over the next few years.



The organization seeks to reach out to those children in the community who will not benefit from traditional agency offerings. Acting as an umbrella agency, the CCSOC works with all groups dedicated to the welfare of young people. We are extremely proud of our track record; we have provided formula for hungry babies, Easter baskets and safe Halloween activities at the Harambee Festival. We made holidays for kids for whom the occasion might just have been another day. We sponsor classes and seminars in such areas as cultural awareness, the arts and safety in the home. Perhaps we influenced a future doctor or nurse or fireman through our Annual Career Day.

The CCSOC has recently partnered with the Dallas Independent School District to present the Annual Irma P. Hall Theater Arts Festival, a Center Stage Competition for all DISD high school drama teams. The Sankofa Players, an independent acting group for teenagers sponsored by The African American Museum in Dallas' Fair Park community and Desoto, Texas' African American Repertory Theater (AART), where Mr. Minor directs professional local talent in live stage productions. Another long time sponsor is The Artist and Elaine Thornton Foundation for the Arts, who provide assistance with production and publicity for in house projects.

Our Needs



The CCSOC was formed in response to the Atlanta child slaying in 1981. A non-profit organization, the CCSOC is committed to the purpose of saving the youth of the community. It works to prevent any occurrence of violence that would jeopardize the safety of a child due to causes inherent in community living.

CCSOC can change the world. In today's society CCSOC offers countless opportunities for adolescents and young adults.

CCSOC solution is to open the minds of our impressionable youth and illustrate to them the positive alternative avenues to express themselves. Teach them self-esteem, self-confidence, self-control, self-reliance along with a talent and a trade. There is a need for positive reinforcements and positive role models.
