BYRON TWP. — Disability Advocates of Kent County is launching the public phase of a $2.5 million fundraising campaign to move its headquarters and create an accessibility showroom at a nonprofit hub under development in Byron Township.

The “Building Opportunities, Creating Independence” campaign has already raised more than $1.75 million over the last several months. The public phase aims to raise another $750,000 to cover construction and campaign costs, new programming, and the organization’s Home Accessibility Center program, officials announced today.

Disability Advocates would be one of nine disability organizations occupying the former South Christian High School at 160 68th St. SW. Earlier this year, Special Olympics Michigan Inc. announced a $20 million project to redevelop the school into what would be the largest Special Olympics facility in the world.

Disability Advocates of Kent County’s new headquarters would comprise 8,600 square feet in the Special Olympics campus that is currently under construction.
