Local non-profit seeks donations

The Stevenson Unit Chapel Development Corporation is currently seeking donors to help fund a $2 million construction project at the local prison. The goal of the Corporation is a multi-denominational chapel and education building that will be used primarily by area volunteer organizations that minister to and instruct offenders during their incarceration. The local project has been approved by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice in Huntsville, however architectural design for the building cannot be finalized until the monetary goal is attained. Floor plans will include a chapel, library, classrooms, chaplain’s office, and kitchen and food service area as well as restrooms and storage rooms. A chapel building at the Connally Unit in Kenedy has served as a model for the Stevenson floor plan. A similar fundraising effort for a chapel at the Torres Unit in Hondo is currently nearing completion.
