HIGHLAND GROUP HOME HAS ANOTHER MONTH
2009 could bring good news for a Highland Group Home. The word got out the home will close due to lack of funding. Generous local and regional donors from California to Florida have sent contributions allowing the home to stay open through January. Donations raised total more than $55,000. The Group Homes' sponsor, Community Link of Breese has put together a campaign to raise another $47,500 to allow the 5 residents to stay in their home for at least another year. To make a donation please visit www.firstgiving.com/communitylink or call Community Link at 618-526-8800
