Welcome House, Inc. (WHI) is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1966 by Executive Director Don Johnson. The organization is the “first” in Dallas for serving African Americans and continues to serve the community with keeping recovery first. Since 1966, thousands of multi-racial individuals have been provided services through our programs, and we strive to answer the call of an ever changing community.
We have had several different programs since our beginning. At the present time our focus is in two programs which have been tailored to serve the community in very vital and at risk areas:
Project Extended Arms provides shared housing and service for those individuals diagnosed with the HIV/AIDS virus and their families.
Operation Renew provides transitional housing and a multitude of recovery support services to educate and assist individuals in recovery from the disease of addiction.
