A Message from President David Kronick
As we turn the calendar to 2022, we do so with great hope even amidst the latest surge in the Covid-19 pandemic. Despite the ongoing challenges over the past year the Dallas Hebrew Free Loan Association remained committed to its mission by continuing to provide interest-free loans to those in need throughout the Greater North Texas Jewish Community.
DHFLA remained on a steady growth trajectory due to the unwavering support of our generous donors. In so doing, we were able to approve loans across almost all available loan types: General loans to help those repair damaged homes from the winter storm, Adoption and Fertility loans to assist couples starting a family, a Jewish Burial loan so that a family could provide a traditional Jewish burial for their loved one, Healthcare loans to ease the burden of soaring medical costs, and an increased number of new Student loans over the prior year to help make college more affordable for our aspiring higher education learners.
These are just a few examples of the many ways that DHFLA is working within the Jewish community to assist in not only the daily costs of living but also providing resources for experiences that otherwise might not be financially feasible for certain families. We are constantly humbled by the relief and outpouring of gratitude from our borrowers and that in turn inspires our team to continue to serve and fulfill the mission of DHFLA. I look forward to seeing many of you (either in person or virtually!) in the months ahead and extend best wishes for a joyful and healthy 2022!
