LifeRight Outreach, located at 1904 6th Avenue East in Alexandria, will host the Alexandria Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce Wake Up Alexandria event on Friday, September 6 from 7:30 to 8:30 AM.
The event is open to everyone. The $1 admission includes a light breakfast, networking and a chance to win door prizes. All money raised will be donated to the day’s nonprofit recipient, UCAN (United Communities Advocating Non-Violence, Inc). All Chamber members will also be placed in a drawing for the Pot of Gold, which is currently valued at $3,517.
LifeRight Outreach opened a transitional housing facility for men in 2007, and in 2014 opened the doors to a second transitional housing facility for women. LifeRight is for people who are serious about seeking radical change in their lives. It offers hope to persons living with an addiction, dealing with life struggles, facing imminent prosecution, or trying to get released from prison or jail. Residents learn about God through lectures, discussions, practicums and doctrines. The program’s purpose is to prepare residents for successful re-entry into life outside the protective walls.
