Thank you, Lowe’s!
After 100 years of serving communities across the U.S., Lowe's today revealed the 100 impact projects out of more than 2,200 submissions that are the cornerstone of 100 Hometowns, an initiative to celebrate Lowe's centennial.
Austin Child Guidance Center (ACGC) is honored to be chosen as one of the grant recipients of this initiative.
In celebration of Lowe’s centennial, the company is supporting 100 communities in need across the country with 100 impact projects that were revealed today. Lowe’s combed through more than 2,200 submissions before arriving at the chosen 100, spanning 36 states.
“We are beyond grateful to Lowe’s for investing in mental health care and treatment options for children and families in Central Texas,” said Executive Director, Kristen Pierce-Vreeke. “This grant helps ACGC repair damage due to the February 2021 winter storm. In light of the past 16 months, the need for high-quality children’s mental health care is more important than ever.”
ACGC sustained significant water damage from broken pipes during the February freeze. As a result, three therapy rooms were destroyed, and the remaining therapy rooms, most of the administrative offices, and two bathrooms were damaged.
Clients and their families have received uninterrupted care through teletherapy since March 2020 and the start of the pandemic. Damage to the building delayed reopening for in-person sessions through the end of the summer. ACGC is scheduled to resume in-person care and treatment programs on August 23 while continuing to provide teletherapy services.
