  • Coastal Bend Day of Giving
  • Thank you again to Coastal Bend Day of Giving and all of you who participated by donating to Charlie’s Place.

    We are truly grateful for your support and generosity.




  • Thank you for your generosity!
  • It is with humble gratitude that we relate, Charlie’s Place met the match on yesterday’s Coastal Bend Day of Giving. We were honored to be chosen as one of the 35 nonprofits to benefit and elated to find that we made a little over $40,000 in donations that will directly benefit all our patients over the next three months. It is truly an awesome thing to see in what a generous, loving, and giving community we live. Your donations are a vote of confidence for our facility,  our staff, and those in treatment. They prove that what we do here everyday is needful and appreciated, not only by our patients and their friends and families, but by our society as a whole.
