A regional non-profit is moving forward with its plans to reopen the former Tillery Chase facility on Roosevelt St. in Mount Gilead.
As we first reported in early June, the organization, Moderate Living for the Aging (MLFTA), has offices in North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee and has been conducting a fund raising campaign to reopen the facility. The organization has purchased the property, and the original funding goal of $200,000 has been increased to $300,000.
Mount Gilead Town Manager Katrina Tatum told WMTG the non-profit plans to have six beds for assisted living residents and 54 beds for independent living.
Continuing its fund raising efforts, MLFTA will host an event at the facility Sat., Aug. 29, beginning at 11 a.m., with live entertainment and food. There is no cost to attend, and all are welcome.
MLFTA organizers Maria Willis and Gregory Smith say reopening the facility “will make it possible for seniors to relocate to the place they call home” and bring jobs back to the community.
