On the morning of Saturday, June 3rd, DeKalb Community Service Board experienced a devastating fire at one of their Mental Health Residential Program properties. Thankfully, while all of the occupants escaped without serious injury, eleven clients enrolled in the residential program lost their homes.
In response to the Brookhaven Apartment Fire, Brighter DeKalb Foundation launched the Residential Program Fire Relief Fund to aid DeKalb CSB residents affected by the June 3rd fire. We are thankful to the outpouring of support that the community has provided to assist those impacted by the fire. To date, our amazing friends and partners have donated over $2,100, which Brighter DeKalb Foundation has disbursed to DeKalb CSB to support those displaced by the fire. We are happy to announce that we have moved all of the displaced clients into new permanent residential housing. Thank you for all of your support!
The Brighter DeKalb Foundation is still collecting donations to help with the purchasing of household items, clothing, toiletries and other personal items.
Please consider making a donation to support the Residential Program Fire Relief Fund. All donations are tax deductible and 100% of the proceeds collected as part of this fundraiser will go towards assisting those affected by the fire.
