Fear and shock have gripped our community once again with the loss of 21 innocent lives in Uvalde, Texas. For the last several years, ongoing senseless acts of violence in churches, schools, grocery stores, and community centers have created a shadow of despair threatening our sense of community and safety. COVID further isolated us and fragmented the underpinnings of our core as human beings. We are all devastated. Yet, we have NOT been overcome. Together we stand strong. Lena Pope stands for solidarity and strength in times of crisis. You are NOT alone.
Do you have a respite from the storm? Join us for comfort and community, a time of quiet reflection and sharing.
Ninety years after our founding, the “Lena Pope Home” operates a good bit differently than it did when it was established as a residential solution for local children in need (and now goes by, simply, “Lena Pope”). Still, the agency continues to proactively respond to the changing needs of children in our community, guided by and with the support of key members of the Fort Worth community.
Join us for an opportunity to put Lena Pope’s current program offerings into the context of the agency’s rich, 93 year history.
Please RSVP (below) for this event as space is limited.

Lena Pope’s mission is to equip children, families, caregivers, and community with a strong foundation through counseling, education, and behavior interventions.
LENA POPE URGING LOCAL RESIDENTS TO SUPPORT 19 TARRANT COUNTY RESTAURANTS PARTICIPATING IN DFW RESTAURANT WEEK,
AUGUST 31-SEPTEMBER 6
FORT WORTH, Texas (August 4, 2020) – Lena Pope, the Tarrant County beneficiary of DFW Restaurant Week for the past 22 years, is urging local residents to support the 19 Tarrant County restaurants that are participating in 2020 DFW Restaurant Week, taking place August 31-September 6, with optional extension through September 27.
Doing so will not only support local restauranteurs and chefs in dire need of business, but also help improve the behavioral and mental health of the hundreds of local children and families served by Lena Pope.
With more than $2.2 million raised since 1998, DFW Restaurant Week is one of Lena Pope’s largest annual fundraisers.
“As restaurants are suffering 50 percent drops in sales and fighting daily to continue operations due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important now than ever before to dine-in or get take-out from the 19 Tarrant County restaurants participating in this year’s DFW Restaurant Week,” said Ashley Elgin, Ph.D., chief executive officer at Lena Pope. “We are so thankful they’ve chosen to participate and give back during this cataclysmic time where every penny counts, so we’re calling on you – Tarrant County – to do your part, too.”
This year’s participating restaurants will offer both dine-in and take-out options, including three-course prix fixe dinners for either $39 or $49, and two-course lunches for just $19. For each meal purchased at Tarrant County participating restaurants, 10 percent will be donated back to Lena Pope.

“In 2019, DFW Restaurant Week raised a record $1 million for its charity partners – $289,070 of which came to Lena Pope – and had 162 total restaurant participants. This year, we’d be fortunate to see a quarter of that,” added Elgin. “We hope our local residents will see this as an opportunity to give back and open their hearts and wallets to support these benevolent Tarrant County restaurants and our hundreds of families in-need. It’s a win-win.”
