Location: Heart House - Wildflower Location, 6031 Pineland Drive, Dallas, TX 75231
Contact: Stephanie, stephanie@apexdallas.org

APEX In Action is the name for the Community Service part of our organization. Come and join us as we take Action to make a difference in our community.

Plans for the Heart House to open a 3rd facility this Fall has been postponed. Instead they have a wonderful project for us to help with before the start of this school year. We will be painting a mural at their Wildflower location as well as some light touch up painting around their facility. The students will be coming back to the center the following week. What a nice surprise for them if we can brighten up one of their rooms and leave a lasting image from APEX to this wonderful organization. We will be projecting a mural image against the wall for our Mural project. Please contact Stephanie at stephanie@apexdallas.org to sign up.

Heart House's innovative free after school program is designed for school-age children in a neighborhood known for its high crime, high unemployment, and lack of affordable, quality care for children. At Heart House, children have access to caring adult mentors, homework assistance, art enrichment, computer learning, health and safety education, and literacy programs.
