Through your support Project Horizon has accomplished huge goals over the last 30 years. But, there is still much work to be done. We invite you to join us for Raising Hope - a campaign to fund and sustain the expansion of our building and programs.
In March 2015, supporters, friends, VMI cadets and other students joined the Timber Framers Guild here on Varner Lane as we literally Raised Hope and crafted the timbers for our three story, 3,600 ft2 addition to our existing shelter under the leadership and guidance of COL Grigg Mullen.
Our building expansion will house several new programs and services, including:
- a training center for volunteers and allied professionals
- a Child Advocacy Center – a child-friendly space for victims of child abuse to be interviewed
- expanded living space
- a new play area for residents of Lisa’s House
- an elevator to ensure accessibility for all of our programs
- and last, but certainly not least, an efficiency apartment to shelter men who are victims of domestic or sexual assault.
Project Horizon is fulfilling its mission of providing safety and support for victims of domestic and sexual violence and child abuse in the Rockbridge community. Our work is always done in partnership with the community, imagining that it is possible to create homes that are safe and relationships that are healthy and free from violence.
The estate of the late Cy Twombly, world-renowned artist and philanthropist, generously donated $200,000 to assist us in Raising Hope. Now, we turn to our community of partners and ask you to help us double this initial gift. We welcome financial gifts for Raising Hope. Your gifts will enable us to maintain our program expansion. Your gift may be a one-time contribution or a pledge, fulfilled over time. Donations may be sent to 120 Varner Lane, Lexington, VA 24450, marked Raising Hope or you may use our PayPal button found on our donations page. We deeply appreciate your support.
