“The Home of New Vision has been awarded a grant of $4000.00 by The Jackson County Community Foundation’s Historic Preservation Endowment,” Glynis Anderson, CEO, said today.
According to Ms. Anderson, the grant will be used for painting and repair of the historic Merriman House, childhood home of Ella Sharp.
“Our organization provides community case management, peer recovery supports and the Jackson Recovery Resource Center, for people with substance use disorders, at the site,” Ms. Anderson said. “The grant from the Community Foundation will give Home of New Vision the opportunity to preserve a historical property and provide a welcoming facility to people seeking services.” This grant was made possible by the Historic Preservation Endowment, a component fund of the Jackson County Community Foundation.
Home of New Vision was founded in 1996 and serves over 1500 persons per year in addressing their substance use disorders. Home of New Vision has locations in both Jackson and Washtenaw Counties. Home of New Vision’s Board Chair is Mrs. Judy Borel.
