More Info

A Place To Meet  offers an affordable 2800 sq ft building with two (2) 1400 sq ft rooms, Two (2) restrooms, with ample lighted parking lot, for recovery oriented, meetings, fellowship to gather, plus community meals, social events, recovery rallies, community events. 

 “A Place to Meet” is a nonprofit corporation registered in the Commonwealth of VA; with an IRS 501 C 3 designation.

 

A Place To Meet was conceived in the height of the Corona Virus shutdown.  While attending a recovery meeting, under a wedding canopy, at 5:30pm on a swelteringly hot, insect infested afternoon with the North bound two lanes of Hwy 17 roaring at about 75 yards off on a costal Virginia afternoon; I looked at the persons next to me and said “it is going to be getting dark and cold soon, we need a place to meet”.  She agreed and said “if you take action I will help”.

 

These actions took place on the last Thursday of August 2020.  A group of ten individuals came together to forward the undertaking.  The first Recovery Meeting met on September 4 2020, as of today ten (10) Recovery Meetings meet weekly serving approximately five hundred fifty (550) persons.

 

Forty four hundred ($4400.00) was raised as start up moneys September 2020, Five Thousand ($5000.00) was donated in April 2020, these monies were used to supplement the rents raised from the meeting to cover the cost of operations.  The monthly output for rent, utilities and insurance is twelve hundred ($1200.00) as of this writing the meetings are providing approximately five hundred ($500.00) per month in rents.

 

A Place To Meet establishes this Fundly request to provide continued supplemental support to the meetings and individuals that participate, facilitate and aid RECOVERY. Two fund raising events are scheduled for the remainder of 2022. The first (1) event is a Recovery Dance and Halloween Party, the second (2) is a Thanksgiving Gratitude Feast on Thanksgiving Day 2020.  These two (2) events mark the beginning of A Place To Meet expanding its regular support activity to “Social Events” with the intention of growing our outreach, creating an environment to broaden social interactions, bring out families, inspire our fund raising activities and enhance our community visibility. 

Thank you ...
