Dare County has released a new video showcasing an expansion project that is slated to take place at Outer Banks Dare Challenge, a residential substance abuse rehabilitation facility located in Wanchese.
The $2 million expansion project—which was approved by the Dare County Board of Commissioners in January 2021—will include the construction of a nearly 10,000-square-foot multipurpose building featuring a full industrial kitchen, a dining room and a conference room, as well as office space and four additional classrooms.
Two new dormitories that will each house 16 individuals will also be constructed on the site, which will triple the number of individuals with substance abuse issues that Outer Banks Dare Challenge staff members can assist at the facility.
The project is funded by a $900,000 grant from the state of North Carolina, a $200,000 grant from Dare County, and a $400,000 private donation.
