On January 19, 2022, a certain real estate listing (19570 County Road 33, Fairhope, AL) was identified as a potential site for the new Baldwin Family Village. Known previously as Oakland Place, it was a memory care center that was in operation for 27 years.
In late February 2022, the property was placed under contract at a purchase price of $700K. Over the ensuing months, more than $700K was raised, primarily from individual donors across the county, and the property was purchased on June 1, 2022.
In order to ensure the sustainability of the program, prior to officially opening the Baldwin Family Village to residents, with the help of a newly formed Baldwin Family Village Foundation, we will raise the first year of operating expenses (approximately $540,000) and develop a fundraising plan to raise funds for the second and third year of operations.
It is our expectation that given the speed with which we were able to raise funds to purchase the property, that we will be able to secure additional funding sufficient to launch the program by
April 1, 2023.
It is the expectation that upon the meeting of certain agreed upon criteria, the Foundation shall transfer the property to Dumas Wesley Community Center. The Foundation will remain the fundraising arm for the Baldwin Family Village program while Dumas Wesley Community Center will own and operate the facility and program.
