Center for Children with Incarcerated Parents
Published April 18th, 2014
Gainesville, Florida -- A community activist hopes to have enough funds to open a building for young people by the end of the month.
Sister Hazel Williams is a missionary and has worked in prison's and Indian reservations.
She's even responsible for the name of a rock band.
She now wants to open a center for children with incarcerated parents.
The center will provide food, ministry and a place for counseling for ages 1 to 18.
Sister Hazel Williams: "I found that God told me to do this. So it's a pleasure to ask Gainesville to help me get this building."
Sister Hazel has already received a letter from the Gainesville plan board and says mayor Ed Braddy is 100 percent behind her.
She still needs funds donated for the building.
You can go to the Bank of America on University Ave, tell them you’re donating to the children of the incarcerated, and it’s tax covered.
