PRISC welcomes participation in any form to help aid in its mission of promoting community sustainability through historical preservation.



Support growing Washington, NC by preserving history!

Our program of giving provides for our current two projects in Washington, NC’s historic district, our Historical Enclave neighborhood and our sober house, Rose Haven.

We have three different stages for each project.

  1. Purchase the houses
  2. Rehabilitate the houses
  3. Offer community programs to assist residents of each project transition into the community as long-term residents or for Rose Haven, transition back into a community as healthy members.

Our initial efforts center on funding stages 1 and 2.

We offer business and civic organizations giving opportunities to support stage 1 and 2 by being a PRISC builder.  We have identified different levels** of individual or corporate giving that applies to each project based on professional need of PRISC projects, giving levels do not translate to the importance of one over the other, they are equally critical to our mission and work.
