How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

Sanctuary Community Action has moved into a newly renovated facility that was funded by community grants, individuals, service organizations, church communities--no tax dollars.  The various agencies providing services to the community are experiencing an increase in their services due to the more 'user friendly' environment and accessiblity to all residents including the handicapped.  Campaign to raise funds for the anticipated $420,000 project was kicked off in January 2011. Renovation of the 'yellow house' on Market St was started in February 2011, completed for occupancy by August 2011 and the newly constructed structure for Danville Branch Interchurch Social Services was completed in September 2011.  By October 2011, the goal of $420,000 was surpassed.  This is truly a community service center and the pride and joy of the community--funded entirely by community grants, individuals, etc.
