Jim Adler gives a child a new coat for the winter.Attorney Jim Adler spent the day passing out brand new winter coats to young children, hoping to keep them warm in the winter. During a holiday carvinal at Bryan’s House in Dallas, each child receieved a new coat lined with fleece to keep him or her nice and toasty when temperatures drop. In addtion to the winter coats, pairs of mittens and hats were donated. A young mother walked into Bryan’s House with the biggest smile after finding out about the donation. She told Adler how grateful she was to have new winter gear for her two small sons. Bryan’s House employees say most of the families they serve only can afford to purchase even more basic needs for their children. In addition to giving out winter coats, Jim Adler & Associates employees volunteered to help the kids with games and snacks during the event. The mission of Bryan’s House is to serve children with medical or developmental needs and their families by providing specialized child care, respite care and social services. The non-profit opened its doors on Nov. 20, 1988. It was meant to be a safe haven for children and families affected by HIV and AIDS. In 2006 it expanded to helping children with special health needs and their families. Today, Bryan’s House serves more than 1,100 children and family members annually, with the help and support of the Dallas community.
