The neighborhood of Vickery Meadow, situated in Dallas slightly north of White Rock Lake, is a unique community that boasts high ethnic diversity. Vickery would be an ideal location to pilot a microenterprise program that would provide empowerment, mentorship, and the opportunity for economic growth for these families. The pilot program would be a selfsustaining tradition of microenterprise in Vickery Meadow that would include regular market events in a permanent space within the neighborhood. Such a program would provide a center of community and support for the residents of the neighborhood, as well as an inviting place for members of the greater Dallas community to connect with this diverse, vibrant group of people.
