The Family Place Receives Financial Support Through Campaign Challenge Formed by Highland Capital Management’s President, James Dondero

The Family Place, a comprehensive facility for domestic violence victims, including children is serving Dallas, Texas communities in need of life-saving help. Since 1978, more than 21,000 women, men, and children received shelter services and 225,000 plus individuals were provided counselling.

Donations and volunteers keep the doors of the facility open to provide support emotionally, physically, and economically. Highland Capital Management’s President, James Dondero is helping to solve the problems in local communities by awarding a $1 million campaign challenge. When Mayor Mike Rawlins and Former Dallas Police Chief David Brown conveyed a call-to-action plan, Mr. Dondero eagerly joined the leaders.

These funds are being used to construct and operate a new counseling center, Ann Moody Place.
