Positive Breathing Organization, founded in 2011, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to helping children of all backgrounds in the most asthma-vulnerable communities in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex of Texas. We strive to educate children and their caregivers about asthma by serving as a resource for disease management and community action. We collaborate with parents, schools, churches, daycares, local health care facilities and groups, and community organizations. Our goal is to help identify, educate, and empower positive asthma outcomes for children; so that they can live active, healthy, normal lives.

  • Wynnewood Apartments Health Fair 2013
