Thank you to Jessica Jones for delivering a welcome message to the new sites in North Carolina receiving $888,000 in support from a public-private partnership that is working to break the cycle of drugs, alcohol and crime for teens.
The Duke Endowment will support the following sites:
- Barium Springs (Cherokee, Clay, Graham, Swain, Macon, Jackson and Haywood counties)
- McDowell Department of Social Services; Families Together/NC Mentor (Transylvania and Henderson counties)
- CenterPoint Human Services (Rockingham, Stokes and Davie counties)
The Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust will support the expansion efforts of the current Crossroads site (Iredell, Yadkin and Surry counties) overseen by Partners Behavioral Health. Over the next two years, they will also establish sites in Gaston County and Catawba County.
We look forward to working with you!
