The Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center is a part of the City of Dallas under the Office of Community Care, located in the historic district of Fair Park in South Dallas.
The 10.5-acre campus is home to five free-standing buildings, including the Administration building (A), the Foremost Family Health Center (B), the MLK Branch Library (C), the MLK ChildCareGroup (D), and the MLK, Jr. Recreation Center/Senior Citizen Center (E).
Each of the 5 buildings on campus provides a variety of services to more than 300,000 Dallas citizens a year, meeting the original 1966 goal of a comprehensive multi-service community center.
In addition to providing services, many civic, social, educational, fraternal, and community groups have access to space for programs, meetings, and special events on-site. Click here to learn more!
Special thanks to Coppell Middle School East for their generous donation of personalized care packages for the homeless, which will be distributed through the MLK Social Services department.
