Reece Center needs help finding a new home
From Special Reports
For years, the Reece Center has provided help through equine therapy for disabled children and adults in the Atlanta area including Coweta County.
Now, the Reece Center is needing help itself.
In early November, the Palmetto City Council voted to allow a developer to purchase the land which the Reece Center has called home for 17 years. The 4-3 vote now allows the sale of the land for housing and commercial purposes.
And as a result, the Reece Center no longer will have its home in Palmetto and is in need of a new one. The Reece Center has until May 31, 2022 to be off the property.
Here’s the short list of needs the Center is asking for assistance on:
– 18 to 20 acres of useable pasture
– Fenced property
– Willing to look at the surrounding areas / counties from where we are now, but we do need to consider distance.
– The Reece Center would, obviously, prefer for the land to be donated so we always have a home, but we are willing to consider a long-term, low-cost lease. (Remember we are a 501c3, so every donation is tax deductible)
– A barn on the property is a plus. (the Reece Center currently has 12 horses and will be adding to their herd soon)
If you have a lead, please contact the Reece Center, they are willing to talk to anyone! Please see their story that aired on 11Alive news on November 1, 2021. CLICK HERE
