Mission Arlington/Mission Metroplex Executive Director Tillie Burgin has been making a difference in The American Dream City for nearly 30 years.

After serving as missionaries in Korea in the late 1970's, Burgin and her family spent seven years praying about doing missions locally. From a closet in downtown Arlington, Burgin launched Mission Arlington on August 1, 1986.

Mission Arlington does a lot of great work in the community, providing a variety of services for people in need: food, dental care, health care, emergency assistance, school supplies, and much more. But just because the people Mission Arlington helps are in need, doesn't mean they don't have dreams for themselves, their family and their community. The work of Mission Arlington and Burgin assists those people in living their dreams, at a critical time in their lives.

We talked to Tillie Burgin about living her American Dream and how Mission Arlington is taking "church to the people."
