plutusgiving - Our Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative
For young adults with ASD who are motivated to live independently in the near future, 29 Acres offers a two-year residential transition academy. The three major components of this program include living in our transitional housing, learning crucial independent living and career readiness skills through our proven curriculum, and gaining work experience through internships and jobs.
Our transitional housing serves as students’ first independent home. Students spend their first year at the recently opened 29 Acres Living Community and move out to our rental homes in the Paloma Creek community their second year. Individual mentoring and support are provided allowing them to broaden their life skills by applying what they learn in the classroom environment. This highly structured and supported environment will enables students to build confidence by strengthening their life and work skills before transitioning to a more independent living option at the completion of the 2-yr. program.

In the late 80s, we began as a grassroots neighborhood association that later became recognized as the Ideal Neighborhood Association, composed of low income families seeking to reverse the negative trends developing within their community. In 1997, a small group from the association went on to form T. R. Hoover Community Development Corporation (TRHCDC), and received its 501(c)(3) and began identifying and addressing the issues of economic divestment, blight, infrastructure decline, neighbourhood safety and the rising levels of unemployment within the South Dallas Community.
TRHCDC began work with its residents to help shape the life of its community. Through hard work and great support from its residents, the results led to the construction of the TRHCDC Multipurpose Center, the building of 55 new single infill homes. Currently, TR Hoover CDC serves children, adults, and seniors in the South Dallas area through programs like after school and summer care, seniors helping seniors, referral services for those in need of housing and food, licensed counseling, donation giveaway tables, ESL training, and seasonal programs.
