Yesterday’s torrential storm did damage all around the city, and one space not spared was Legacy Counseling Center.
Melissa Grove, executive director of Legacy, jokes that she was “lying in her office getting a suntan,” because the storm blew out the atrium skylight window at the agency’s McKinney Avenue headquarters and counseling office.
“Despite the roof being blown off, we continued to serve our clients, because that’s what we do,” Grove said.
She said the building lost electricity and suffered some water damage. Pieces of the skylight smashed through the windshield of one agency counselor’s car.
Grove said everyone is safe and agency operations continue as normal, but I suggested it might be a good fundraising opportunity.
“Hey, I’ll always ‘ho’ out for donations,” Grove said. Donations to help repair office damage can be made here.
