Linden Lodge Project
On September 26, 2008 NAMI-Moore County assisted in purchasing a residential home sitting on 3.37 acres in Pinehurst, NC for the expressed purpose of providing the opportunity for additional housing for individuals with a serious and persistent illness in addition to giving them the opportunity to improve life skills. It took four years to locate the perfect location and setting!
This property was purchased at a cost of $279,000, and as of September 21, 2010 this debt was paid off through a tremendous fundraising effort. This property was transferred to the Linden Lodge Foundation, a tax exempt foundation, whose sole purpose is the operation and sustainment of Linden Lodge.
This is our opportunity to be a model for other communities in our State by showing that we can, when necessary, take care of our own when State and Federal budget cuts drastically reduce vital services for the mentally ill.
