Our History

Committed to Making a Difference

MADEA was founded by Brenda L Marsh on March 17, 2016.  MADEA has been at the forefront making a difference in children's lives since 2016.  Located at the intersection of community and life, MADEA is a life-affirming journey that builds on the richness and power of lifelong values.  We have been providing young people with the values and skills they need, as well as school supplies, backpacks, school uniforms, shoes, and coats, to become exceptional community leaders.

MADEA has given foster parents and children a break by providing a  4th of July Celebration in 2016 that included a Barbecue Dinner with all of the trimmings, games and activities which including swimming, horse back riding, volleyball, and potato sack racing just to name a few.

MADEA has provided community service hours for children attending Dallas Alternative Education Program (DAEP), Cedar Hill 9th Grade Center and Canterbury Episcopal School.  MADEA has assisted students returning to their home school, graduate with their class and has inspired 1st generation kids to go to college. 

 

MADEA has collaborated with Cedar Hill Municipal Court to provide a mentoring community service program in lieu of parents having to pay large fines or children having to go to juvenile detention.  MADEA has helped first time offenders to be released into their parents custody and probation instead of jail time.

MADEA has partnered with Macy's to provide coats to needy children for Winter 2017.

MADEA has partnered with Friendship West Baptist Church to feed over 200 homeless men, women and children for Thanksgiving Day 2017.  Also to provide them with coats, gloves, caps, backpacks, and necessities.  We also provide them with clean clothes year round.
