CARE House may be expanding/relocatingPosted on January 25th, 2010 No comments
The Oakland Press reports that CARE House in Pontiac may be expanding their facility. CARE House has submitted a request to the Pontiac City Zoning Board to re-zone property that includes the now closed Ducky’s Bar on Woodward between Earlmoor Boulevard and Nebraska Avenue. If approved, CARE House, who already owns the property, plans to demolish the bar and its own facility to build a new building at the location.
Most of us who do child abuse and neglect work in Oakland County are very familiar with CARE House. CARE House provides advocacy, prevention, intervention and treatment services to children who have suffered abuse and neglect. They also conduct forensic interviews of children who are alleged to have suffered abuse and neglect. According to the Oakland Press, CARE House has declined to talk about the plans publicly, but hopefully these new facilities will provide better rooms to conduct the forensic interviews also. I am sure we will be hearing more about this if and when the zoning plan is approved.
