Fundraising and Grants
Last week we received the following notice: Your application was reviewed, recommended and approved for funding in the amount of: $5,000.00
This grant is from the Owensboro Community Health Investment Grant Program and is for the 2017/2018 grant period.
The money from this grant will help pay for new Celebrate Recovery Materials and Bibles. As well as quarterly questionnaires, maintaining the records for meetings and future Celebrate Recovery material as well as signage for the home at 718 Center Street.
We will also be adding a smoking cessation program this coming year as it was one of the stipulations of the grant guidelines. No Smoking Zone signs have been posted at each entry into the parking lot and another is hung on the wall outside of the side entrance wall going into The Home.
Remember we have meetings on Monday and Friday at 6:30 at the Church of the Nazarene. All are welcome to come and join in.
