Approved by Board of Directors: July 2022
SECU Foundation awarded One Place a $2 million challenge grant to support construction of a new child advocacy and resource facility in Onslow County, the SECU Hope Center. SECU Foundation awarded this grant just 14 months after giving One Place a Mission Development Grant to create financial strategies for facility expansion and sustainability. The new two-story, 35,220 square-foot facility will enable the non-profit to increase its capacity by 50% to serve 600 children and families annually. For more than 20 years, One Place has worked to strengthen resources and programs to end child abuse and create a stronger, more resilient future for the Onslow community.
