CoRR Campus announces Capital Campaign
The corner of Sierra College Drive and East Main Street in Grass Valley has the highest traffic count in Nevada County. On one corner sits a new set of buildings, the innovative flagship of Community Recovery Resources.
It is here that more than 2,000 individuals a year will recover from substance abuse and related mental health challenges, visit their primary care physician, attend health and well-being classes or obtain pre-employment drug testing.
A $9.3 million loan provided by USDA allowed CoRR to construct the buildings, which opened in the fall of 2012. Now the community is invited to help support The Campus and all the services it provides.
“We’re excited to be offering a full array of outpatient programs, detox, residential treatment and transitional housing, child development and drug testing,” said CEO Warren Daniels. “Now, we’re equally excited to announce our capital campaign, which will help pay for the buildings housing on-site services.”
To date, more than $2.3 million has been pledged by local citizens dedicated to supporting services to help resolve what has been identified as the largest challenge facing Nevada County. Another $400,000 was donated by local contractors who built the project.
“In a 2011 survey of community leaders, substance abuse and mental illness were named as the largest issues facing Nevada County,” said retired Judge Al Dover. “I didn’t need to be told of the devastation. I saw it every day in my courtroom. The community has really stepped up to help alleviate the suffering that faces these individuals and their families. As CoRR’s capital campaign chairman, I’m proud to be a part of it.”
CoRR is hoping to reach those residents who have not yet been invited to tour the facility and learn more about the programs housed within. Interested parties are invited to contact Deputy Director Ariel Lovett to arrange tours and obtain more information about making a gift to the campaign.
“We’re in the process of designing our donor wall and want to make sure everyone with interest has the opportunity to get their name up there,” Lovett said.
The Campus is open weekdays from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. No referral is necessary to access services.
