About the Project

Bonton Village @ Lake Highlands is a community asset and unique ecosystem focused on relationships that addresses core human needs and provides customized pathways for our most disadvantaged residents to reach their potential.

This innovative project will replicate the economic development and housing model established in southern Dallas by Bonton Farms and combine it with the collaborative impact model from City of Refuge in Atlanta and best practices from other cities and organizations.

An urban farm, a farm-to-table café, a workforce innovation hub, primary and behavioral healthcare, and transitional housing will be located at one site to help people build job skills and secure long-term employment opportunities to empower long-term thriving. 

Bonton Village @ Lake Highlands will provide people experiencing homelessness with the necessary services and environment to recover, while creating a sense of community that is connected to and integrated with the surrounding neighborhoods.
