Waypoint to be welcomed with ribbon cutting ceremony
28 Oct 2022
Wabash County, IN – Grow Wabash County is excited to bring a warm welcome to Waypoint with a ribbon cutting ceremony and blessing of the house on Monday, Nov. 14
The purpose of Waypoint Wabash is “to provide a safe, structured and stable environment for people recovering from substance use disorder,” by offering women a safe, healthy place to continue their recovery journey and become better connected in the community.
Waypoint is the result of the hard work led by the Wabash County Drug Steering Committee which first began meeting in 2016 to address the growing need for awareness and solutions regarding substance use in Wabash County.
The project truly gained momentum thanks to the support of Indiana Landmarks, who donated the house and started renovations and the Community Foundation of Wabash Couty who served as the fiscal sponsor before Waypoint established its non-profit status.
“We are excited and so very thankful that Waypoint is now open, and actively helping ladies with Substance Abuse disorder,” Jay Driskill, Waypoint Wabash Board President, said. “We want to sincerely thank Indiana Landmark and the Community Foundation of Wabash County for their incredible support, and all our donors, volunteers and community partners who have helped us achieve this dream. I am confident many ladies will be positively impacted, and the trajectory of their life greatly improved, through their experience as a Waypoint resident. Wabash County is a very generous county, that works together with leaders from all walks of life, to impact and serve others.”
The ribbon cutting ceremony and blessing will begin at 2 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 14, at the new Waypoint home on 189 North Wabash Street in Wabash. Refreshments will be served following the ceremony and guests will be invited to take a tour of the newly renovated property.
