In its second year, the "It's Your Time SIX:02 6K" is partnering with The Family Place of Dallas. The Family Place empowers victims of family violence by providing safe housing, counseling and skills that create independence while building community engagement and advocating for social change to stop family violence.
For victims of family violence, The Family Place is the Dallas area’s leading organization delivering proven programs that address emotional and physical abuse and incest. The Family Place provides free, comprehensive services that prevent violence and fully support women, children and men on their path from fear to safety.
In 2014, they provided services to a total of 11,523 clients with 164,672 hours of service in Spanish and in English. When families are in their care, they work to meet all of their needs. At the Safe Campus, they feed more than 50 kids every day, providing meals and after-school snacks—that’s 18,250 after-school snacks a year! They go through more than 3,000 tubes of toothpaste and 3,600 bottles of shampoo each year.
