Attorneys Serving the Community (ASC)

Nexus Recovery Center is proud to be the 2023 Beneficiary for Attorneys Serving the Community (ASC), a dynamic volunteer organization of almost 400 women lawyers and law students from the Dallas/Fort Worth area. ASC’s mission is to bring together women lawyers who collectively utilize their resources and talents to support local non-profit organizations whose programs benefit women, children or families.

Each year, ASC raises money for its chosen Beneficiary through various events including a 5K race, Silent Auction, and Annual Luncheon. Since 1987, they have raised nearly $5 million for Dallas-area charities. As ASC’s 2023 Beneficiary, Nexus cordially invites you to the events listed below.
