Dallas County Juvenile Department

Through a formal Memorandum of Understanding, POETIC provides in-community aftercare for juvenile justice involved girls identified as having experienced child maltreatment, commercial sexual exploitation and sex trafficking. In 2018, the Dallas County Juvenile Department and POETIC launched a breakthrough collaboration called Pipeline to Success with the goal of ending the cycle of re-victimization for girls exiting Dallas County Juvenile’s Letot Residential Treatment Center.

The Beck Group

In the summer of 2018, the Beck Group took on the task of a full pro bono renovation of POETIC’s Creative Arts Studio and Kitchen, while adding a new bathroom to the space. The Beck Group assembled an army of passionate employees across all disciplines to re-imagine the space and guide the work to fruition.

TriArc Construction

In December 2017, TriArc Construction agreed to be POETIC’s first major corporate partner leading a 6-figure pro bono renovation of POETIC’s trauma therapy center and on-site classroom. After renovating the Statler Hotel and building out the new Dallas Morning News Building, TriArc rallied their sub-contract partners and led all planning, design and execution of the new space. A true community champion, TriArc Construction made it possible to open POETIC’s door in downtown Dallas.

Office of Commissioner Theresa Daniel

As a leader of the Youth Homeless Services Coalition, Commissioner Theresa Daniel paved the way for POETIC to reclaim formerly abandoned space in the heart of Dallas for POETIC’s service delivery. Commissioner Daniel is a fierce advocate for girls and women, and her voice played a key role in the opening of POETIC’s downtown Dallas location.

Café Momentum

Dr. Han and Ms. Tinker (POETIC’s Co-Founders) acknowledge that POETIC would not be where it is today without the support, mentorship and genuine collaboration of Café Momentum’s Executive Director and Executive Chef, Chad Houser.

Bent Tree Bible Church

In September 2017, Bent Tree Bible Church helped with POETIC’s initial launch by providing free space for the delivery of therapeutic services. The Bent Tree Bible Church community (including life groups, Bible study groups and more) generously supports POETIC with financial and in-kind contributions, and volunteers, to aid in on-going program delivery.
