Meet Ace, the adorable dog on the right. A welcome family member to Dr. Compton Broders and his wife Maureen Murry, Ace is the inspiration for North Texas Ace Foundation. When Broders and Murry adopted Ace, they quickly realized that this adoring creature was completely dependent upon them. They learned that the things Ace needed to live, thrive, feel safe, and belong to a family were the same things that motivate humans. Like a pup, a person needs to feel safe, to have respect from others, and seek experiences that can help them grow. The couple drew on the philosophy of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs—from the basics like food, water, and warmth to self-fulfillment needs that allow one to reach their full potential. This philosophy is at the core of North Texas Ace Foundation.
The North Texas Ace Foundation is a 501(c)(3) private foundation that is dedicated to helping individuals and animals achieve all levels of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs through donations, partnerships, and scholarships with other similarly aligned non-profit organizations.
