FOREST FORWARD INVESTS IN THE SOUTH DALLAS COMMUNITY

AND CONTRIBUTES TO THE FORWARD PROGRESS OF THE CITY OF DALLAS.


Forest Forward is a non-profit organization that partners with the community to drive equitable development, economic mobility, and improve outcomes for children, residents, and families of the South Dallas community. The transformational infusion of $75.215 million into the heart of zip code 75215 will ignite healthy neighborhood revitalization and create a new vibrant core for the City of Dallas.

According to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, your zip code predicts your life expectancy more than your genetic code. 75215 life expectancy is 67 years.

This is how we do it…

together.
