Avante House Shows Off New Home

LOWNDES COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) - A local non-profit is using a new facility to carry out its mission-to help women in North Mississippi overcome addictions.

On Sunday, workers and volunteers with Avante House gave the public a tour of their new home to celebrate the organization’s three-year anniversary.

It is where up to eight women will live as they go through the rehab program.

Workers say Avante House has helped about 40 women in the area since the organization was founded three years ago.
