Juliette Fowler, a member of the pioneering Peak family, was the visionary behind the founding of Juliette Fowler Communities, a 126 year-old nonprofit organization in East Dallas. Juliette recognized the need for a safe and loving home for the widows and orphans of her day and actively pursued a solution. Upon purchasing 15.5 acres of land, she studied the care methods of her day and outlined a plan for an intergenerational community. She died unexpectedly leaving a will that specified the purpose of her estate, thus earning recognition as Dallas' first philanthropist.
Today, Fowler serves more than 700 individuals, employs 170 staff members and engages over 2400 volunteers annually. Senior living services include independent living, assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing and rehabilitation. Children and youth are served through foster and adoption care and The Ebby House, a home for young women who have aged-out of foster care or are at risk of homelessness due to abuse, neglect or abandonment.
