In Dallas, Christina Yampanis is devoted to bringing community involvement to law enforcement by encouraging crime awareness, prevention, and education. Through her work with the North Texas Crime Commission and other volunteer efforts, she has effectively promoted community awareness and the FBI.

Ms. Yampanis is a participant in the Dallas Mayor’s Council on Morals and Values conference and the Mayor’s Back to School Fair for underprivileged children, and is involved with the Denton State School residential facility for adults with mental retardation and developmental disabilities. She volunteers monthly at the Austin Street Homeless Shelter and is the co-chair for the Salvation Army Angel Tree program, which provides Christmas presents to needy children and the elderly.
