WE BELIEVE IN MAKING A POSITIVE IMPACT - ONE PERSON, ONE NEIGHBORHOOD AT A TIME.

We pursue the highest standards of corporate responsibility in everything we do - and that includes supporting and empowering our team members to improve the quality of life in the communities where we do business. That is why we coined the phrase, “Park Place Cares” as we truly care about the communities we live and work in. This dynamic outreach program supports over 250 organizations around the Dallas-Fort Worth area throughout the year. Our 1,400 members are further challenged to volunteer their time and resources to serve our communities by being offered paid time off to show their support to organizations who rely so heavily on volunteers.
