by CLARE Foundation in News

On September 14, 2016, CLARE Foundation will break ground and begin structural upgrades to the property located on 1871 9th Street in Santa Monica, California. The ceremony is scheduled to begin at noon and end at 2pm during which time CLARE will reveal its proposed architectural design concepts of Transformative Living at CLARE (TLC) and provide guided tours of the facility. Guests will be treated to a light lunch and refreshments following the ceremony.

Generous Donors Bring Vision to Life

The TLC project was made possible through a $3 million campaign that received charitable donations from friends and supporters. The structure was originally acquired through funding from foundations, corporations, community members, government grants and a $1 million dollar bequest from the Amy Phillips Charitable Foundation in 1990.
