CitySquare Block Party 2021
Saturday, November 6
6:30 p.m. – 10:30 p.m.
In 1988, Dallas businessman Jim Sowell was moved by his concern for the problems associated with poverty. He took action and began working with friends to launch the Central Dallas Food Pantry. In 1990, the organization received status as a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation and due to its growth, relocated in headquarters.
In October 2010, Central Dallas Ministries changed its name to CitySquare to better reflect the commitment to equality, inclusiveness and recognition that fighting poverty involves bringing the entire community together in the heart of the city.
Since their humble beginnings, CitySquare has grown into a broad nonprofit organization offering a comprehensive array of social services that address four key areas related to the persistence of poverty, such as hunger, health, housing and hope. Their service programs provide more than 50,000 human touches in Dallas, Texas.
