LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - After coming very close to shutting down, an East Texas Christian- based organization is breathing a sigh of relief.
The Lufkin Dream Center said they were coming close to running out of money, and were preparing to close next week, when they learned they are the recipients of a $100,000 grant from the T.L.L Temple Foundation.
They now be able to continue providing homeless and at-risk populations with food and shelter.
"We want the community to know that this is not just tucked away here, and just some place where we help people overcome drug and alcohol addiction," Director of Dream Center, Jeremiah Campbell said. "It's more than that, we actually go out and we service the community."
Campbell said this grant has afforded them a grace period but they need $200,000 to get them through this year.
