Dallas, TX – December 10, 2023 – Behind Every Door is delighted to announce the grand opening celebration of the Cedar Crest Community Center in Dallas, TX. It is scheduled for Thursday, January 11, 2024, at 11:00 AM. This momentous event signifies the organization’s presence and continued dedication to fostering positive change by providing pathways of hope and empowerment within the neighborhoods they serve.

Darrion Lewis, President of Behind Every Door, expressed his excitement, "We are thrilled to be a part of the rich history of the Cedar Crest community in a meaningful way. Behind Every Door is committed to providing pathways of hope for the residents who keep this neighborhood thriving. The Cedar Crest Community Center is not just a building; it's a symbol of hope and a catalyst for positive change."

Researchers have identified strong links among socioeconomic disparities, physical inactivity, and poor health. In many low-income communities, park and recreation facilities may be the only place for children to be physically active outside of school (McKenzie et al., 2013). The Cedar Crest Community Center is a $14 million dollar state-of-the-art facility that will serve as a hub for education, mentorship, and community engagement, designed to uplift and strengthen its residents.

The grand opening celebration on January 11, 2024, will be a festive occasion with guided tours, a ribbon-cutting ceremony, and a showcase of the community center's offerings. Special guests in attendance will include dignitaries and donors who have played a crucial role in bringing this initiative to fruition. City Councilperson Carol King Arnold, a tireless advocate for community development, will be among the esteemed guests.
