One Place, a Jacksonville nonprofit that provides family services and child victim care, will use the $2 million dollar grant from the State Employees Credit Union Foundation to build a new facility.

The grant does require the organization to raise matching funds.

The construction will allow them to help more children by having housing, mental health services, prevention, and victim care all at one location.

A groundbreaking is scheduled for next June and the building is expected to be completed by spring of 2025.

Annette is originally a Midwest gal, born and raised in Michigan, but with career stops in many surrounding states, the Pacific Northwest, and various parts of the southeast. She has been involved in the media industry in eastern North Carolina for more than three years. An award-winning journalist and mother of four, Annette moved to ENC to be closer to family – in particular, her two young grandchildren. It’s possible that a -27 day with a -68 windchill in Minnesota may have also played a role in that decision. In her spare time, Annette does a lot of toddler and baby cuddling, reading, designing costumes for children’s theater and producing the coolest Halloween costumes anyone has ever seen. She has also worked as a diversity and inclusion facilitator serving school districts and large corporations. It’s the people that make this beautiful area special, and she wants to share those stories that touch the hearts of others.
