Foundation 45 was founded in 2011 by DECA after the suicides of Frankie Campagna and Adam Carter from the Dallas punk band Spector 45.  Foundation 45 is a group of musicians, artists, and Deep Ellum neighbors looking to support those struggling with mental illness, suicidal thoughts, addiction, depression and anxiety. The group funds the Interlude 45 Support Group, which provides free group counseling supervised by licensed professional counselors in Deep Ellum. They also provide support services for those left struggling with the collateral damage of losing a loved one to suicide.

Deep Ellum Urban Gardens’ vision is to provide opportunities for people to grow their own food, increase healthy activity, get to know their neighbors, learn from each other, and create a productive and beautiful common garden. This vision has been realized and is comprised of neighborhood volunteers who have come together to permit the land, create blueprints, and test the soil.

In order to provide increased safety in Deep Ellum, the Deep Ellum Foundation hired a private security team, Dallas Area Protection and Patrol Services (DAPPS). DAPPS provides extra security officers to patrol the Deep Ellum area on foot during peak hours. Security team coverage will take place Thursday to Sunday evenings. Officers respond to calls from businesses, residents, and visitors. They submit a written report to the Deep Ellum Foundation after every shift. If you are in a situation where you need assistance, first call 9-1-1 to file an official report then contact Chief Maurice Jones at 214-532-4202.
