Mount Washington—Sunrise Children’s Services has sold its former residential treatment facility in Webster County. The 3,030-square-foot building sits on 1.8 acres in a private wooded area.
Tanzon Asset Advisors handled the online auction on Sunrise’s behalf. The buyer intends to lease the building to a party that will continue to serve individuals in the community. The building and land are located near Dixon.
Some months ago, Sunrise ceased using Dixon as a treatment center because the statewide nonprofit is expanding its foster care and community-based services.
“During fiscal year 2014, Sunrise cared for 1,618 children and youth across Kentucky,” said Sunrise CFO Guy Goodner. “But we want to serve even more as the need has increased.”
“Dixon has been an important part of our ministry over the years,” said Sunrise President Dale Suttles. “Dixon caregivers made a real difference in the lives of several thousand children. We are truly grateful to them. But this sale allows Sunrise to serve many more children and their families in Western Kentucky.”
