The Lightening Alliance Community Development Corporation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  We were  formed in 2010 for the purpose of serving teens emancipated from foster care, run-aways, throw-aways and other young adults at risk of homelessness in North Texas.  We are an all-volunteer organization with a passion for addressing the needs of this under-served and often invisible population.

While there are a variety of emergency housing, job training programs and other resources available, the statistics for young adults remain abysmal.  We at the Lightening Alliance take a unique approach. Our integrated program has been specifically designed to develop holistic physical, mental and emotional health, with particular emphasis on addressing the negative impacts of abuse, neglect, abandonment and post traumatic stress disorder.  Most importantly, it addresses the “poverty of being” and feelings of worthlessness that often hinder these vulnerable youth from pursuing self-care, personal advancement and personal relationships.

We are an alliance of community resources working together to help participants develop the positive mind-set needed to avoid homelessness, lack of education, unemployment, incarceration, and the ongoing cycle of poverty.  Won’t you join us?  Click on the tabs to the left to learn more…
