Five nonprofits in Lake Highlands and East Dallas were awarded part of a $150,000 grant from the Hispanic 100 Latina Giving Circle at Texas Women’s Foundation on Nov. 16.

This philanthropic organization, also called H100 Latina Giving Circle, distributed the grant money among 29 North Texas nonprofits serving Latina women and girls.

Healing Hands, Literacy Achieves and Family Place were the Lake Highlands nonprofit grant recipients.

“The grants recipients’ tenacity and hard work will have long lasting impact. Their success stories continue to inspire not just H100 members, but the Hispanic community at large.” Silvana Rosero, H100 President said in a release. “They have shown resilience, creativity and compassion for their fellow women. Hispanic 100 members and leadership remain committed in the support addressing social issues and making a difference.”

Three East Dallas nonprofits including Literacy Achieves, Our Friends Place and Wilkinson Center, are also H100 Giving Circle grant recipients.
