LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The SURF center is celebrating 25 years in the greater Lafayette community.

The center is a non-for-profit organization that serves as a resource center for people recovering from alcohol and drug addiction. A facility that once was housed in one room, now has grown to a fully functioning building.

Today it received an award from the state house for its years of service.

“Thousands of people come through our doors each year looking for unity and fellowship,” said Marvin Hill, President of the center’s board.

He said this milestone is all thanks to those in the community who show their support. He said the center is run completely on community support. They have no paid workers and people in the community donate their time and services to help maintain the building.

“It goes to show that, you know, people do care around here,” he said. “To be around this long, we wouldn't have have been around this long if people didn't show they cared.”

He hopes the next 25 years are filled with more support for those in the community who need it.

There are ways you can help through donations. Learn more about this organization on their Facebook page.
