Thanks again to our FRIENDS at Eaton for making our dream come true!  We now have privacy/security fencing along the back of the campus!  We are one step closer in our master plan which is to control access to our campus and provide a safer environment for clients and staff.  Take a look at our before and after pictures!  A shout out to the Lowes install team!  Anyone interested in assisting with additional fencing needs or landscaping, please call the agency at  227-1623.

Many many thanks to the Eaton team who worked on two projects for us here at Beyond Abuse last Friday during United Ways Day of Action.  The first project was to remove an old lattice fence in preparation for the installation of a new perimeter privacy fence that is being funded by Eaton.  The 2nd project was to replace broken and stained ceiling tiles in the Client Services Center.   Thanks guys!!  Any one interested in volunteer opportunities can call the office at 227 1623 as we always have R&M projects on our list!!!
