Back in March, board members from REACH announced plans for a capital campaign that would raise enough money to build a new shelter in the county. The shelter will hopefully be fully constructed by the end of 2015.
REACH is a domestic violence and rape crisis center with the mission of eradicating domestic violence and sexual assault crimes in Macon and Jackson counties through prevention, intervention, and educational services. The organization is also a nonprofit organization, thus operating with the use of grants and donations.
With a total price tag of $1.2 million, the board was able to secure a state grant that would fill the void of $900,000 – leaving $300,000 to be raised.
