Region Ten, the behavioral health care provider in the region, will see a dream come true early next month, when it will officially open the doors to The Women’s Center at Moores Creek. The new center, just a stone’s throw away from the main campus on Old Lynchburg Road, will focus on the treatment of women who battle substance abuse. To make that dream a reality, Region Ten is asking the community to raise funds to match an anonymous $250,000 matching donation it received recently.
Charlottesville hasn’t seen a facility focused on helping women who battle substance abuse for over three decades. Region Ten is changing that. Come next month, those women, and their children, will finally have a place to go.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) – The Charlottesville Housing Advisory Committee is working to tackle the affordable housing issues plaguing the city.
At its meeting on Wednesday, May 16, the full committee heard ideas from a religious-based group.
A group called the Interfaith Movement Promoting Action by Congregations Together, or IMPACT, has been conducting research in hopes of solving the housing crisis. The group says adopting new zoning codes could be the solution.
IMPACT says affordable housing is a fundamental problem that needs to be addressed at its roots. The group says the city should change legislation to incentivize developers to build more affordable units.
