Phoebe Health Grants help non profits

Lee County -- Phoebe Putney Hospital awarded 165 thousand dollars in community health grants to 14 organizations in Southwest Georgia.

 The Anchorage, a Christian alcohol and drug treatment center for men, was given a ten thousand dollar grant. The money will be used to renovate one of their dormitories the men stay in during rehabilitation.

Anchorage Executive Director Kenny Phillips said "It does need to be conducive for recovery. An environment that they can focus on what they need to focus on, not the fact that they are sleeping on old mattresses or the floor, in rooms that bring you down even further."

Now in their 52nd year, The Anchorage currently has over 60 men in treatment, with a waiting list of 31 seeking help.

Phoebe Putney, through their Community Visions Program, donated grants to 14 programs like the Anchorage, to improve health and lifestyles in Southwest Georgia.
