In the spring of 2018, Big Rock announced their donation of $200,000 to Carteret County Domestic Violence Program for the construction of it’s new SAFE Shelter. Together Big Rock & other community partners succeeded in raising $1.5 million to build a new domestic violence shelter to provide safe, temporary emergency shelter to victims of abuse and their children in Carteret County.
Big Rock president Dale Britt and other board members presented a check for two-hundred thousand dollars to the Carteret County Domestic Violence Program. “We here at the Big Rock are humbled to help provide a safe harbor for many desperate individuals and their children who are victims of domestic violence in our county,” explained Britt.
The current CCDVP shelter continues to deteriorate beyond repair. Estimates for major repairs and renovations coupled with costs required to modify the building to safety are building code standards show that new construction is the most cost-effective option for the CCDVP.
