“This is wonderful,” the 102-year-old icon said after the announcement. “I support this because I know the good that Fowler Communities does.” She added that she hopes to meet the young women who move into the home one day.
Juliette Fowler Communities announced a new project of the nonprofit family and senior services organization — a transitional home for young women aging out of foster care, to be named after Dallas real estate icon Ebby Halliday.
The Ebby House, scheduled to open in late 2014, will be a community designed for women ages 18-22 to learn skills such as hygiene and personal finance as well as career training and education.
Juliette Fowler Communities was founded in 1892 as a home for women and children, and today operates assisted and independent living programs, nursing care and rehab therapy as well as a foster care program in collaboration with Presbyterian Children’s Home & Services.
