Since opening in 1993, Dallas Metro Ministries has impacted untold thousands of lived in the inner-city of Dallas. With the humble beginning of one Sidewalk Sunday School truck, three sites, and offices out of Clay and Barbara Wallace's home, Metro grew. For the next four years Metro had offices and storage in local churches, and bought their permanent facility in 1997. Beginning as a children's ministry, they have grown to include a youth program, a church, internship program, Sidewalk Sunday School programs Tuesday-Saturday, and multiple street outreaches. Numerous staff and volunteers run the various ministries, and all staff and interns are housed in Metro's 24- unit apartment complex, purchased in 2 000. Dallas Metro will continue to grow, but at the heart of it all is change in the inner-city. For the thousands of lives that have been touched, and thousands more that have yet to be reached, Metro will stand as a beacon of hope in the darkness of the inner city of Dallas.
