For over 30 years our mission has been to empower victims of domestic violence & sexual assault by providing emergency safe shelter, transitional housing, support services, and partnering with stakeholders to raise awareness of domestic violence in our community.
La misión de Brighter Tomorrows es empoderar a las víctimas de violencia doméstica y agresión sexual al proporcionar refugio seguro de emergencia, vivienda de transición, servicios de apoyo y asociarse con las partes interesadas para crear conciencia sobre la violencia doméstica y agresión sexual en nuestra comunidad.
Brighter Tomorrows was founded in 1989 as a cooperative effort between the Grand Prairie City Council, Grand Prairie Police Department, Grand Prairie Human Services Coalition, and a group of concerned citizens. For thirty years, our excellent programs and services have helped to change lives for thousands of individuals. Our staff has a long-time legacy, and passion, for assisting victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
Over the years, Brighter Tomorrows has sheltered an increasing number of clients from throughout the metroplex. We see clients, not only from Dallas and Tarrant Counties but also those fleeing abusive situations in other cities in Texas and around the country. The more we reach out, the more we are aware that there is still work to be done. Domestic and sexual violence knows no economic, cultural, or educational boundaries. To combat this epidemic Brighter Tomorrows serves individuals regardless of age, race, ethnic origin, gender, or city of origin.
In 1995, Brighter Tomorrows began responding to sexual assault survivors' needs. This program offers a full range of services to survivors of sexual assault.
Today, Brighter Tomorrows is one of the largest domestic violence and sexual assault agencies in Dallas County.
Brighter Tomorrows receives funding through a Community Development Block Grant from the cities of Grand Prairie and Irving; Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC); VOCA Victims of Crimes Act - Office of the Texas Attorney General Criminal Justice Division; Sexual Assault Prevention & Crisis Services - Office of the Texas Attorney General; OVAG Other Victims Assistance Grant - Office of the Texas Attorney General; FEMA; private foundations; local businesses; and individuals. We also rely heavily upon the support of our dedicated volunteers.
