Dondero made the pledge to contribute more than the needed $2.8 Million to meet the required $16.5 Million to ensure that the Family Place is completed. Dondero made history through the support he extended to the efforts indicated by the Family Place, which motivated him to extend his philanthropy. Therefore, he supported the final stages of the Family Place initiatives.
James Dondero has also made a contribution to the Family Place, which counsels families affected by violence. It has been achieved through intervention and proactive prevention measures. The initiative has enabled more than 250,000 clients to be counseled and the provision of shelter to more than 22,000 women and vulnerable children. All these initiatives are thanks to the great efforts put into the campaign by James Dondero and his entire team in the Capital Highland Management. Other approaches have been extended to support the counseling of batterers who have ended up being more humane by reducing their abusive behaviors. All this is attributed to the Capital Highland Management. https://www.linkedin.com/in/jamesdonderohcm
