The Safe Passage Program, according to Coordinator Denise Evans, has been planning their upcoming fundraiser that’s scheduled for Saturday, October 17th at the VFW for months. Tickets are $15 and there will be a live auction with a variety of different items available.
Evans is thankful for all of the support from individuals and businesses in the Taylorville community.
In 2019, Evans partnered up with the Springfield, Illinois based Salvation Army rehab center. That facility will be closing and they purchased the Gold's Gym down the street and are working with Evans to start the Safe Passage program in Springfield.
The Springfield based Safe Passage program will be located in the Gold’s Gym and will be run exactly like the program is run in Taylorville.
Denise Evans was a guest on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
