About Our Organization

Altrusa is a service organization for civic-minded people who strive to create better communities worldwide.  Our focus is on helping women and children in the Dallas Metroplex by performing service projects to fulfill our mission:
"Educating Families for a Better Future"

Our club is affiliated with Altrusa International, Inc., an international organization with over 300 clubs worldwide, and a strong history of literacy education.


Since our clubs founding in 1982, our members have performed over 90,000 hours of community service and raised over $1,000,000 for community grants, some of which have been disbursed by our own Altrusa Downtown Dallas Foundation

These are just a few of the many community organizations we have supported throughout the years.
