The Family Place Campaign To Raise $16.5 Million For Victims Of Family Violence Gets A Boost After Highland Dallas Foundation Awards Them $1 Million

Challenge Grant

Victims of family violence in Dallas can now afford a smile after Highland Dallas Foundation came to their rescue. While making this announcement, Mr. Dondero, who is the co-founder and the president of Highland Capital, said that the firm had awarded a $1 million challenge grant to assist the Family Place to raise the final $2.8 million for the Legacy campaign. The family place is the leading organization in Dallas that supports victims of domestic violence. Mr. Dondero made the long-awaited announcement during the 21st Annual Texas Trailblazer Honors Luncheon that is organized by the Family Place Foundation.


While delivering his speech at the Luncheon, Mr. Dondero said that the challenge grant was awarded after Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings and Police Chief David Brown called the philanthropic arm of Highlands’s capital into action. Mr. Dondero noted that he was pleased with the way Family Place had taken the initiative to help victims of family violence in Dallas to live a better life. He said that Highlands Capital would continue to support projects initiated by Family Place.


The Family Place Legacy campaign seeks to raise money to support the construction and equipping of a central Dallas counseling center for victims of family violence. The counseling center will be named after Ann Moody as a way of honoring her. The building is set to serve more than 2,000 victims every year. They will be given emergency shelter since the existing facility is at maximum capacity.


Besides providing shelter, Ann Moody Place will also be the home to the agency’s Be Project. It is a project that provides teen dating and bullying violence prevention education. The facility will also house animals for victims who fear to leave abusive relationships because of the fear of leaving behind their pets.
