How We Help

During the unprecedented year of the corona virus pandemic, DJF reorganized quickly to find new and innovative ways to provide service and support to our agency partners.

Dallas Junior Forum gives monies to their partner agencies to help them recover from the recent winter storm.
The annual DJF fund raising auction was forced to go virtual. Monies raised allowed us to provide $25,000 in emergency assistance to agencies for storm damage relief.
