"Sandbranch is a Winner"

Sandbranch Wins Sierra Club

Environmental Justice Award

The Sandbranch community has been selected to receive the 2017 Sierra Club Lone Star Chapter Environmental Justice Award. The Environmental Justice Award is awarded when merited and is conferred upon an individual or organization that has done outstanding work toward identifying and addressing environmental problems that have a disproportionately adverse effect on communities of color and/or low-income communities.

The Awards Committee was impressed by how the Sandbranch Community formed a coalition – not only with community members – but with a cross-section of the greater community of elected officials, the legal community, and an array of national and state agency personnel. All united around a common, but groundbreaking goal of providing potable water to the overlooked community of Sandbranch through its first water supply system. The award will be presented July 22 in Austin, Texas.

One Step Closer to Water Flowing!

Sandbranch Development and Water Supply Corporation took an important step toward bringing water to the community by winning a USDA SEARCH grant to fund a preliminary study on how to bring water to the community. Now we need your help to get the houses ready to pipe it in. Please contribute to our Go Fund Me campaign here. Contributions will be used to install and/or repair plumbing throughout the neighborhood in houses that have been without running water for over 30 years.

About Us

Sandbranch…everybody’s community! is a grassroots effort organized by Project DreamHaus to bring water, sewage, and social services to Sandbranch, TX., an unincorporated community in the southeastern corner of Dallas County. Just 14 miles from one of the richest cities in America, Sandbranch is the poorest community in Dallas County. It has been without running water, sewage service, and trash pick up for over 30 years. Sandbranch…everybody’s community! is about giving a basic human right ---clean drinkable water---to the citizens of Sandbranch. Read the Strategic Vision and Plan for Improvements to the Sandbranch Community here.

Sandbranch is a historically African-American community created in the 1930s-40s and thought to have been settled even as early as post-slavery years as a Freedman’s settlement. The population today is 87% Black, 10% Hispanic, and 3% White.


Estimates show Sandbranch has 40 active households with about 80-100 residents, all of whom live below federal poverty levels. None of the homes have running water, sewer service, or trash pick up.
