About the Program

CitySquare will have 330 AmeriCorps members who will increase social emotional health, increase food security, and improve stability for economically-disadvantaged individuals in Dallas County, Tarrant County, and Lamar County, Texas. At the end of the program year, the AmeriCorps members will be responsible for increased capacity of 33 host sites, improved social emotional skills for 300 students enrolled in out-of-school time programming, and distribution of 4 million pounds of food to food insecure individuals and children.
