|Devereux Ready to Break Ground for New Shelter|
|April 25th will be a special day for the Devereux Residential Treatment Center in the Pine Hills neighborhood of Orlando, FL. Through the generous support of our donors, as well as the support of The Master Custom Builder Council (MCBC), new construction will begin for an emergency shelter building on campus. This much needed space will allow Devereux to provide a temporary home for children who have been removed from their homes due to allegations of abuse and neglect. |
Join us at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, April 25th as we “turn the dirt” on the building of our emergency shelter! RSVP for this event to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special thanks to:
