Leading Ladies Spectacular is a non-profit organization born out of the desire to help the spouses of professional athletes using their influence and resources to better their communities.

Genesis Women’s Shelter serves women and children who are forced to seek refuge from violent homes each year. Since 1985, battered women and children have been arriving at the shelter with only the clothes they are wearing, becoming “instantly poor.” Their need for food, clothing and housing is immediate. Genesis Women’s Shelter’s Mission Statement is to provide quality, safety and shelter to battered women and their children through crisis intervention and short-term crisis therapeutics and to reduce the occurrence of violence against women and children in the greater Dallas area.
