For many Salvation Army of North Texas supporters, Majors Dawn and Paul McFarland are familiar names and faces. Among their three decades with the Army’s social services, they were the former leaders at the Adult Rehabilitation Center in Dallas.
According to The Salvation Army of North Texas Managing Director Jay Dunn, “As thousands of North Texans continue to face the impacts of rising costs with inflation and the depletion of federal aid programs, the need for support is great. Our success as a region is due to strong leadership and collaboration and we know Majors McFarland will lead us there.
The couple will be responsible for overseeing operations that support those combating poverty, addiction and homelessness in Dallas, Tarrant, Ellis, Denton and Collin counties.
Commenting on their new assignment, the majors said, “We’re assuming our roles in North Texas at a time when thousands are struggling to keep food on the table, keep up with rent and mortgage payments, and afford their usual household expenses. We will be supporting The Salvation Army’s transformational services for individuals and families to achieve long-term stability and self-sufficiency.”
