Ebby Halliday became a household name in Dallas by selling homes over the past 70 years.Ebby Halliday has worked tirelessly to help shape the real estate industry of our city, along the way they’ve never lost focus on their goal to provide community service in the area. This determination to provide opportunities and assistance for others goes back to the foundation of the Ebby Halliday Company, which was established on three points of service—to the client, to the industry, and to the community. Ebby Halliday Family of Companies acquired Dave Perry-Miller & Associates, a Dallas leading luxury real estate brand in 2007, and Hewitt & Habgood joined forces under Ebby and Dave Perry-Miller InTown in 2011. The philanthropic principles of Hewitt & Habgood are well-suited to group themselves with the impressive Ebby Halliday name. Hewitt & Habgood takes initiative and spends time to supporting multiple charities around Dallas and Oak Cliff.
The latest Ebby Halliday project is The Ebby House. Named in honor of the Dallas the real estate icon herself, the Ebby House is an innovative transitional community for young women who have aged beyond foster care’s assistances. The newly renovated building’s purpose is to serve women ages 18-24 by giving them the tools they need to prepare for a successful future. The Ebby House provides housing for 12-24 months complete with a House Mom for encouragement and wisdom along their transitional journey. Within the intergenerational community, young women receive guidance in many essential life skills including health and wellness, personal finance, communication, computer skills, future education opportunities, career advice, and volunteerism.
Ebby believes these skills are the hallmarks of an empowered individual for our future. Ebby Halliday herself is delighted by the opening of The Ebby House, when speaking on the subject she said, “Knowing that The Ebby House will be a place for young girls to reach their potential is just wonderful.”
The Ebby House’s inspiring vision caught the attention of another Dallas charity group, Dwell with Dignity, and they have teamed with the Ebby Halliday Company to help these young women.
In order to make this house a real home, the interior of Ebby House was designed by the talented people at Dwell With Dignity. If you are not familiar with the name, Dwell With Dignity is a non-profit organization of local Interior Designers and volunteers dedicated to creating soothing, inspiring homes for families struggling with homelessness and poverty. Their services focus on providing and installing home goods such as furnishings, art, bedding, kitchen supplies, and even food in the pantry. Their mission is to help families escape poverty and homelessness through design, one household at a time. Take a peek inside the lovely and colorful rooms.
We hope you’ll agree that these girls will have the opportunity to go from girls with dreams to women of vision!
