We Need You!



Offering over 70 events, classes and activities a month is no easy task! 

We could really use your help!

Volunteer your time!

Help teach a class!  (Do you have a skill that you can share?)

Chaperone a trip!  (Come join us for trips to parks, museums and other events. Drivers are needed!)

Share with other volunteers in folding letters and stuffing envelopes for mailers.

Or help us with some much needed donations!

Call 972-690-7526 if you have any questions or to find out more!

And don't forget that you can donate furniture, clothing, books, shoes and other gently used items at THE RESALE SHOP, a charitable project of Jewish Family Service.  Find it on the SW corner of Jupiter and Belt Line in Richardson.  You can even schedule a pick-up by calling 214-710-1362.  Check it out at


In 1990, two concerned parents of adult children with mental illness joined forces to build an organization to help address the needs of their loved one--currently and in the years to come.  Thus PLAN of North Texas was born.

PLAN currently has a staff of 7 serving over a 120 individuals and their families, using a holistic approach to treating individuals with mental illness with effective sustainable reduction of symptoms and improved quality of life.

Planned Living Assistance Network (PLAN) of North Texas is an organization dedicated to providing comprehensive support to families and individuals with mental illness.
