2019-2020 Mavs Foundation Projects

Arlington Life Shelter
Arlington Life Shelter provides short-term shelter and support services for homeless men, women, and children in North Texas. As the only homeless shelter between Fort Worth and Dallas, Arlington Life Shelter works to help its homeless neighbors integrate back into society and become contributors to the economy. Funds from the Mavs Foundation will supply technology for our new technology center.

Youth World
Youth World Learning Center is a nonprofit organization that impacts children in need by inspiring hope for their future and relieving economic burdens. We are a free resource for the community to find support, educational resources, mentoring, music and art programs, athletic clinics, summer camps and more. Funding from the Mavs Foundation will help to provide a new library for our summer program and the children at Youth World.
