How to Give

Generous contributions from individuals, businesses and foundations make it possible for CHAI to provide the ongoing exceptional programs and services that touch the lives of adults with intellectual disabilities, and their families, each and every day.

Contributions also allow us to meet pressing needs that may exceed our operating budget and respond to issues and opportunities that will enhance the lives of our clients as they strive to reach their full potential.



These funds provide support services for clients that live in the community, residential options in small group homes in a Jewish home-like environment, and long-term support and supervision. We work hard every day to see a smile, watch a client go to work, celebrate a success, cook a meal, prepare for Shabbat, or learn to play an instrument.

We need your support to make all these achievements become a reality.

At CHAI we take care of our clients for all of their adult life, as long as our services meet their needs. Building our Community Homes for Adults Endowment Foundation (CHAEF), and securing planned gifts to provide long-term funding, will allow us to ease the emotional and financial pressure for families who need our help to care for their loved one with disabilities. Some of our clients have no remaining family members and have no other funds available to pay the cost of their care, so the financial responsibility is covered completely by CHAI.

CHAI is proud to be a partner agency of The Dallas Jewish Community Foundation’s Create a Jewish Legacy program. Please consider including CHAEF in your estate planning. For more information about planned giving, please contact your financial advisor or contact Patsy Goodman, Director of Development, at or call 214-888-4909 to begin a conversation.

Grant CHAI-Light

We are grateful for our long-standing partnership with the Jewish Federation of Greater Dallas that began even before CHAI’s founding in 1983. The Federation’s Planning Committee provided guidance and leadership to the founders of our organization and the partnership continues today.

In addition to the Federation’s annual allocation that supports our general operating funds, we have been fortunate to receive both Long-Term and Short-Term grants to strengthen our services. This community support has helped us provide added safety and security for our residents and clients.

We received a Short Term grant to install and program security cameras at all of our group homes as well as our central office. This enhanced security system will provide an enhanced measure of safety for our residents and staff as well as peace of mind for our residents’ family members.

We received a multi-year grant for our Nursing Services Department allowing us to hire a Full-time RN and a part-time LVN. CHAI had previously used contractors to provide nursing services. With the addition of these staff positions, we are able to better stay on top of the health and wellness issues of our a timely manner. The nurse knows the individuals and their medical history and needs and our client’s familiarity with the nurse makes caring for them a smoother process. Our nurses are able to provide ongoing training of our group home direct care staff on medical issues and can be especially effective in training staff on medication management.
