If you’ve lived in Far North Dallas for a number of years, you’ve probably heard of Neighborhood Service Council and the work it does with at-risk youth, particularly in the Coit/Spring Valley/Maham area. For more than 20 years, NSC has offered kids a safe and enriching place to go after school and keeps them from getting caught up in gangs.
A major fundraiser for the nonprofit is the annual spring luncheon 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. May 25 at Embassy Suites. Tickets are $50 and on sale now. Buy them here.
NSC is a small organization with the capacity to serve just 30 children each school year age 5-13 at Spring Valley, Northwood Hills, Dover and Bukhair elementary schools. It also serves RISD Academy and Dobie Primary. NSC rents a building from the Spring Valley United Methodist Church just off Spring Valley and Peyton.
The program works wonders for the students fortunate enough to participate (there is a waiting list). With enough support from the community, it could expand and make even more of a difference in our neighborhoods.
