The Family Place has been working diligently to raise money for its Legacy campaign, which will raise money for a new shelter. Highland Capital Management has announced they will be adding a $1 million grant to challenge others to donate.
This grant will match donations up to that amount. The campaign only needs to raise 2.8 million more over the next 6 months in order to reach its goal. James Dondero, President and co-founder, and Highland Capital, have made that goal a possibility. The announcement of the grant was made during this organization’s 21st Annual Texas Trailblazer Awards Luncheon.
The grant will be handled through the Highland Dallas Foundation and it will match up to 50% of any donation. Two civic leaders, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings and Dallas Police Chief David Brown, appreciate Highland Capital and the Family Place for their efforts in family violence intervention.
This campaign will help build a new Dallas counseling center. Learn more about James Dandero: http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/james-dondero-appoints-new-president-of-institutional-products-for-highland-capital-management-300165627.html
The center will have 13 emergency shelter bedrooms, medical and dental services, and many more life saving services. It is projected that this shelter will serve more than 2,000 annually. The new shelter will also be home to the Be Project, which educates more than 6,000 students every year. They will also have an animal shelter which will help domestic violence victims with pets.
