Mr. Daniel Dogba
Welcome To LCA-DFW Official Website
The Liberian Community Association of Dallas Fort Worth (LCA- DFW) was founded over 30 years ago by its first president, David Peters, along with Henry Harmon, James Bass and a handful of other hardworking Liberians primarily to provide a support system for Liberian students studying in the area.
At Liberian Community Association DFW we pride ourselves in the daily contribution to individual and Liberian community wellbeing. We believe that by sharing common values we can increase the opportunity of each Liberian in the community.
The mission of LCA-DFW is to help residents and resettled Liberians gain access to crossed-cultural activities, educational and socioeconomic development awareness programs in the Dallas Fort Worth area. Furthermore, the Liberian Organization intends to promote unity and peaceful coexistence; cultivate an environment for volunteer services and charity.
LCA-DFW is one of many chapters in the Southwestern region that make up the Conference of Liberian Organizations in Southwestern United States (COLOSUS). Other chapters include: LCA-OKC, LCA-Tulsa, LCA-Houston, LCA-Austin, LCA-Denver and LCA-Louisiana and other eligible cities and states.
LCA-DFW initiatives present the Liberian community with opportunities to honor individuals who are making a difference in helping to mold the lives of our youths. In addition to ensuring our newly elected officials are installed, the inauguration ceremony spotlights the different groups and individuals who are critical in building a great community.
Since LCA came into existence over three decades ago, it has helped many newly arrived Liberians get necessary information about jobs, education, medical services, immigration, and other legal services. Also, our large community helps newcomers to transition into the greater DFW metropolitan life, without losing complete touch with Liberian social norm. Membership is opened all to every Liberian in the DFW Metropolitan. Don't just stand on the sideline get engaged in your community....More...

ELWA Hospital received assorted medical items from LCA-DFW
The ELWA Hospital in Paynesville outside Monrovia has received a number of assorted medical items to help combat the deadly Ebola Virus in Liberia.
The gesture came as a result of a request of medical items needed by the ELWA Hospital/ Ebola Treatment Unit (EUT) as instructed by the Liberian Community Association of Dallas – Fort Worth Metroplex (LCA-DFW) to help fight against the deadly Ebola Virus Decease (EVD).
Speaking to Radio Monrovia on Thursday at the ELWA compound in Paynesville, Dr. Brown estimated the cost of the items at over US$ 299,000.
The 732 Boxes include gloves, wheel chairs, anti microbial hand soaps, disinfectants, and isolation wearing materials amongst others.
He added that the quantity received are beyond expectation and therefore use the occasion to applaud the Liberian Community Association of Dallas for their support to their Country.
He also disclosed reductions in the amount of Ebola cases reported at the ELWA ETU and attributed it to the change in attitudes of Liberians.
Dr. Brown mentioned that the items will be used for its intended purposes and is calling on all Liberians not to be complacent but continue in the fight by following
