About Jonathanís Place

In May 1991, a 3-day-old drug-addicted newborn came to live with Lisa Matthews, founder of Kid Net Foundation. He had no name on his birth certificate, and his mother was unable to care for him. He was given the name Jonathan by Ms. Matthews and her two sons. Jonathan was adopted within a short time by a wonderful loving couple who live in the Dallas area. Today, he is a healthy, happy 11-year-old. The foundation's first major project, Jonathan's Place, is named in his honor.
Jonathanís Place was the first licensed foster group home in Texas for drug-addicted babies and small children. We have since expanded our mission and now provide emergency residential care services to abused, abandoned and neglected children.
The facility was created and is operated by the Kid Net Foundation, a non profit organization founded in 1991 by Dallas resident Lisa Matthews and Phil Matteis to provide specialized services and housing to at-risk children in Dallas County and throughout the state.
Jonathan's Place is licensed as an emergency shelter by the Texas Department of Protective and Regulatory Services (TDPRS).
Programs are managed by a licensed child care administrator. Professional treatment team members (e.g., pediatrician, licensed psychologist, LMSW-ACP and ECI) provide assessments and monthly monitoring of each child's plan of service. Staff are CPR/first aid certified, PMAB certified and they are required to complete a minimum of 30 training hours annually.
Referrals for placement at Jonathan's Place come from drug treatment centers, Child Protective Services caseworkers, social service agencies and individuals needing assistance.
