Compassionate Artist Series Benefits HPCAV

First Wesleyan Church of High Point created, sponsored and hosted its first “Compassionate Artist Series” in 2009.  Four different evening events, featuring four different Christian entertainment options, were put together, with the proceeds going to help sponsor HPCAV and the Refugee Welcoming Ministry of High Point.  This series raised $25,000 for our two organizations.  On January 24, 2010, Jim Summey, HPCAV Executive Director, gratefully accepted a check for $12,500.00 from First Wesleyan Church.  “It was a good thing, done in a good way and for good causes,” said Summey.  These funds will be used for our general operating expenses.  Thank you, First Wesleyan!

Next Neighborhood Initiative Begins

Washington Drive is the next neighborhood where the focused deterrence strategy will be employed.  High Point police and High Point Community Against Violence members have been meeting with residents of the area to explain the strategy, answer questions, address concerns and enlist community support and participation.  We look forward to seeing this neighborhood become safer for the individuals and families who live there.
