According Bowl-A-Rama Chair Lori Turpin,
“Behind Every Door Ministries is thrilled to be hosting its first fundraising event to celebrate its five year anniversary and raise funds to expand its ministry in impoverished Dallas communities.
“The Bowl-A-Rama will be a fun evening of bowling, food, and football watching at Bowl and Barrel on Sunday, September 20th from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. A Live and a Silent Auction will both accompany the bowling tournament and party.
“For the last five years, Behind Every Door has been transforming lives and sharing the love of Christ in both word and deed with residents living in apartment communities in Dallas’ most underserved and impoverished neighborhoods. This ministry changes lives by:
- “forming relationships that reinforce the dignity of each person “behind every door”
- “offering programs for adults and children that promote spiritual growth as well as intellectual, emotional, and physical health
- “partnering with churches, nonprofits, and individuals
“As a result of these efforts, crime has drastically decreased in these communities, more residents have become employed and have overcome addictions, children’s grades have improved, and a healthy sense of community has developed. When you couple these strides with the compounding effect of overcoming the dark consequences of generational poverty, Behind Every Door is creating a lasting impact for years to come.
“With the help of our supporters, Behind Every Door, its staff, and its partners can continue and expand the life-changing work they have been doing for the last five years!
