Did you know that the M.I. Lewis Social Services Center provides more than just food for those in need who live within the boundaries of the Dickinson Independent School District? However, food is one of the more important items provided, as proper nourishment is so important for a healthy body and mind. Statistically, aid is provided for direct assistance for rent, utilities, school supplies and food for a yearly total to date of $474,671.
M.I. Lewis is governed by a 16-member board of directors, an 18-member advisory board and operates with an executive director and office staff of five, plus volunteers. People needing assistance are interviewed, registered and serviced at the M.I. Lewis facility at 215 FM 517 E. in Dickinson.
