September 2021

With over $30,000,000 invested into serving low to moderate communities since 1991, SouthFair has a LOT to celebrate for the last 30 years of service. Our goal to raise $30,000 by North Texas Giving Day can be made possible with a gift from you! And we've provided many ways to make that process easy.

Through the NTGD platform, GoFundMe Charity, and DonateStock, you can show your support for all the services we offer here at SouthFair!

North Texas Giving Day

North Texas Giving Day has always focused on providing an impartial platform for organizations to raise funds for their cause. This year, they promoted the addition of an equity statement.

Ours is as follows:

Everyone deserves to feel protected. SouthFair makes that possible by revitalizing a community with affordable housing which benefits low- to moderate-income families. Although SouthFair services predominately people of color, we are committed to revitalizing South Dallas by giving everyday people opportunities at homeownership and protection.

We asked kids to share why having a home is important.


DonateStock is a great and fun platform that allows anyone to make a donation to our organization. The stock markets are at all time highs, making it the perfect time to donate stock.

Our Fair Park Family

These homebuyers are graduates of SouthFair's Homebuying Program. Hear directly from them about their experience...

Ms. Green is a recent 2021 homeowner

" I was introduced to MaryAnn Cuellar, who told me about the program and how they could help me buy a home. Her knowledge and guidance through the program gave me a wealth of information on the work that needed to be done to get me where I am today. It hasn't been easy, but her pep talks kept me encouraged. The expertise of the entire team will truly be an asset to anyone wanting to stop renting and buy a home."

Ms. Rodriguez has been a homeowner in Fair Park Estates for over 5 years

"My homeownership journey was simple and stress free due to all the help and HB education received at SouthFair, especially the help with credit and learning about DHAP. In honesty, when the interviewer asked me about working with the other HB team members, I just had to say, 'I didn’t really have to do much at all, except provide all the documents required, and attend mortgage ready appts and/or training.' The SouthFair staff did everything, it was simple and quick!” 

Ms. Parker purchased one of SouthFair's brand new 4-bedroom homes this year.

"This is the first time buying a home so I can’t compare the process but I definitely feel like I’m a part of the community and not just a customer... Ms. Mary Ann and Ms. Evans were really accommodating and helpful with the process... Extending the conference room to do the signing, providing snacks when you’re going through a 2-hour signing, it’s personal and genuine. They serviced me through."


Monica Cotton

Word of mouth allowed for Monica Cotton's babysitting service to stretch over generations. This SouthFair resident, has spent the last 32 years raising many of "her babies" with her affordable childcare plan for those who need the help. From police officers to school teachers, Ms. Cotton has helped raise many in the community and has no plans of retiring any time soon. But there's more to her than being a caretaker...
