The Gay and Lesbian Alliance of North Texas (GALA NTX) raised $888 for Jonathan’s Place, an emergency shelter for children who’ve been abused, abandoned or neglected. Funds were raised during GALA’s annual holiday celebration and benefit, held at a private residence in McKinney.

Donations and supplies for the shelter’s “Needs List” were also collected at the GALA holiday party in January. Despite being delayed by the ice storm in December, the holiday party was a strong showing of community support.

Moreover, the Jonathan’s Place foster care & adoption program recruits, trains and supports foster and adoptive parents regardless of sexual orientation. Case managers work to place children into a Jonathan’s Place foster home that is qualified to meet the individual needs of that child. Should a child become eligible for adoption, Jonathan’s Place provides a continuum of care for the child and their adoptive family.

GALA Vice President Jeanne Rubin said “I’m so excited for 2014; we are going to keep growing and continue our efforts to bring LGBT equality to north Texas workplaces, schools and communities.”

Gay and Lesbian Alliance of North Texas is Committed to celebrating diversity & enhancing equality for Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender North Texans in our schools, workplaces and communities.
