The vision for the expansion of programming and facilities has been in the works at Safe Place for several years. In 2012, the Board adopted a strategic plan that embodied the goal of enhancing and expanding the current facilities. After a comprehensive feasibility study contucted in 2013, the Board set out to locate a future building site and purchased 9.8 acres on Andrews Highway in 2015. The capital campaign for $22,500,000 was officially launched in the fall of 2018 under the leadership of Cliffy Beal and Chad Cooksey. The Safe Place Board designated $4,850,000 in reserves towards this capital project. Safe Place reached 100% of this goal in August of 2021, Safe Place realized that our original campaign goal was approximately $1,500,000 short. The total funding designated to fund this project to date is $22,842,712 representing 93.73% of our revised total project budget of $24,369,647. To secure the remaining balance of funds, the Safe Place capital fundraising committee and the Board are actively pursuing prospects from foundations, corporations and individuals to successfully raise the remaining funds of $1,526,935.
