Smithfield adult care center promised financial relief
Posted April 23, 2013
Smithfield, N.C. — An adult care center in Johnston County in danger of going out of business is getting some financial support, its owner says.
Katrina Boylan opened the nonprofit, Divine Destiny Adult Care, in Smithfield in September, trying to provide a place where people suffering from Alzheimer's disease or dementia could spend the day, providing relief to their caregivers.
But because the center doesn't receive public funding, it has run out of private donations, leaving it $20,000 behind in its lease, payroll and other expenses.
Boylan said Tuesday that a church in Wake County has pledged financial support and a local business is considering support as well.
She has vowed to keep the center from closing its doors.
