Dr. M. Joan Terry Rev. Tiffany Wright
Dr. M. Joan Terry and her daughter, Rev. Tiffany Wright, have a loved one who has gone through the program of The 24 and his life has been changed beyond belief. They have their loved one back and they attribute his success to The 24. In this spirit, they wanted to give back in a special way. They both love an English Tea Party and have even produced fundraisers centered around one, so they came up with the idea for Tea for Recovery!
Joan and Tiffany hope you will join them at Tea for Recovery so we can raise important funds for The 24’s residents and help other families reconnect with their loved ones. Your support of this event will save lives and give hope to families. Thank you for your support!
Dallas 24 Hour Club provides transitional living, support services and essential life skills for homeless alcoholics and addicts, so they can embrace long-term sobriety and become contributing and self-supporting members of the community. Each year, Dallas 24 Hour Club (The 24) helps over 600 people get off the streets, find employment, reconnect with family members and embrace long-term recovery. In early 2021, The 24 opened Tillman House, an affordable sober living community with support to encourage long-term sobriety for Graduates of Dallas 24 Hour Club.
Dallas 24 Hour Club History
In 1969, Lee Tillman founded Dallas 24 Hour Club as a place to be open 24 hours per day for individuals suffering from alcoholism and drug addiction who were seeking help. The story goes...one night about midnight in June 1969, Lee was 12-Stepping a man when the building was getting ready to close. Lee tried to explain that he couldn't leave this man whom he was trying to help. Words were exchanged and Lee and this man were forced to leave before finishing their conversation. This incident had such an affect no Lee that he came up with the idea for The 24. A few weeks later, he opened Dallas 24 Hour Club. Over the years, Dallas 24 Hour Club has grown to include our facility on Ross Avenue with 75 beds and our Tillman House, an 18-uit apartment complex with 41 beds.
