Thank You, 2016 Class of Leadership Dallas!
The 2016 class of Leadership Dallas, the Dallas Regional Chamber’s flagship leadership-development program, marked the culmination of its class project with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, celebrating the dedication of the newly-renovated Pregnant & Parenting Women with Children (PPWC) program building at Nexus Recovery Center. Read about their project here.
Candice Romo speaks for the Dallas Cowboys Women’s Association benefiting Nexus Recovery Center
"What's so great about Nexus is that they let women bring their children. There are a lot of rehab centers and places you can go but not all of them let you bring your kids with you."

With the recent death of Rosemary Briggs, Nexus Recovery Center lost one of its most ardent supporters. Rosemary served on the Board of Directors in the 1980s and 90s, and in 1996 she co-founded, along with Doris Anton and Wylodean Saxon, the Women's Auxiliary of Nexus. She was generous with her financial support of Nexus and also willing to mobilize her friends' support.
The administration building on campus is named for her; and a picture of Rosemary, her husband Ben and her sons Michael and Robbie hangs in the main hallway. We will miss Rosemary's passion and dry wit.
If you wish to donate to Nexus, as suggested in her obituary, please direct your gift to the Rosemary Briggs Memorial Fund. Send checks to the attention of Becca Crowell, or call Beth Hunter at 214-321-0156, ext 2101 to make a donation through credit card. Obituary
