Highland Capital Management To Contribute $1 Million Towards Family Place’s New Facility

Family Place provides shelter for victims of domestic violence in Texas. Its objective is to eliminate violence through the provision of assistance to victims and their families, extensive community education, proactive prevention, and intervention. The Family Place Legacy Campaign aims towards the construction of the Ann Moody counseling center for victims of domestic violence in Dallas.

The facility will include group and private counseling rooms for adults and children, a centralized hotline, dental and medical clinics, and multiple emergency shelter bedrooms.

Corgan, one of the leading architectural firms in the United States, will be designing the facility. Highland Capital Management’s President and co-founder James Dandero announced that the company would be contributing one million dollars towards Family Place’s $16.5 million legacy campaign.

The grant will be dispensed through HCM’s philanthropic department, Highland Dallas Foundation Inc. This was after the Dallas Police Chief David Brown and Mayor Mike Rawlings called on the community to help solve this life-threatening problem in the city.

Family Place CEO Paige Flink said that the Ann Moody Counselling Centre is a great opportunity for anyone willing to provide life-changing services as well as shelter for victims of domestic violence. Highland Capital Management President made this announcement at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas during the facility’s Annual Texas Trailblazer Awards last year.
