The Dallas Independent School District’s Julia C. Frazier Elementary School campus in South Dallas is currently undergoing renovation and redesign to become Frazier House. In 2018, Frazier House will open as a shared space that partners and collaborates with community nonprofit and service organizations to deliver a variety of educational, legal, health-related, economic, social services, job skills training and job placement to parents in Dallas ISD.
