LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A place that hundreds of people turn to for help is looking for some help of its own.
The Healing Place helps hundreds of people every year who are struggling with an addiction, and it's now facing a budget deficit of $1 million.
Jay Davidson, the president of Healing Place, tells us the organization's costs and demand are on the rise, but donations are down.
Davidson says the center has cut costs wherever possible internally, but says if the $1 million shortfall isn't overcome, programs such as child development, parenting, and aftercare for recovering addicts are in jeopardy.
"The impression is that we're so good and so great that we don't really need any help," Davidson said. "But in fact we do -- we're just like the other not-for-profits -- we've been struggling for the past couple years."
Davidson is hopeful donations will pick up during the second half of the year, as the holidays approach.
