James Dondero Supports The Family Place’s Initiative

A Dallas-based organization that supports victims of family violence, The Family Place, has embarked on a new campaign. Its objective is to raise funds in support of the construction of a new facility for counseling family violence victims.

The new Dallas Counseling Centre, which was named after Ann Moody, was budgeted for $16 million as capital. The facility, which was designed by a renowned architecture and design company, Corgan, includes a hospital, equipped dental clinic, 13 emergency bedrooms and a call center.

The center will have private and group counseling rooms and spaces for job training. Ann Moody Place intends to serve over 2,000 people each year. In addition, the facility will serve as a learning center for anti-bullying.

It will also help in prevention of teen relationship violence. This new facility will have an animal shelter. It will cater for the attendee’s pets.

On 4th October 2016, The Family Place celebrated its 21st Annual Texas TrailBlazer Awards Luncheon, which was held at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas. During these celebrations, the co-founder and principal of Highland Capital Management, James Dondero, announced the company’s support of $1 million towards raising the final $2.8 million.

Through Highland Capital Management, James Dondero, posed a challenge where the company, in the next six months, would match 50% of the amount raised.

This challenge was started after Dallas Mayor, Mike Rawlings, and David Brown, the Dallas Police Chief, called for support of the noble initiative. This information was originally reported on PRNewswire
