Jonathan’s Place is licensed by the State of Texas and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services to operate a Girls’ Therapeutic Program. We provide long-term residential care to girls age 10 – 18 that require a higher level of therapeutic care than the children in our Emergency Shelter. The girls in our care have suffered from various forms of abuse and face insurmountable odds of recovering from this without continuous, dedicate care.
Each of the girls receives support from dedicated program staff, case managers, psychiatrist, psychologist and therapists. Girls age 14 – 17 also attend Preparation for Adult Living (PAL) program classes to learn how to function responsibly and independently in all areas of their lives.
Jonathan’s Place is the only organization in Dallas County and one of only a few in the 19 county North Texas region that provides residential therapeutic care to this population of children.
Your Gifts at Work: Amanda Makes the Team
Amanda’s mom abused meth. Child Protective Services removed her after they found Amanda malnourished, neglected and living in a filthy house. She was only four years old.
At age 13, Amanda was placed at Jonathan’s Place after years of bouncing between foster families. While in our care, she started high school and tried out for her school’s volleyball team. She made it! We have been beaming with pride ever since!
As with most extra-curricular activities, there are extra costs. Your donations will help us cover those fees – like uniforms, shoes and travel (which are not cheap). Like any loving parent, we never want to be in a situation where we have to say “no” because we can’t afford to support their passion.
