Healing Place names building for recovery supporter Larry Zieverink Sr.
RALEIGH, N.C. [03.25.04] — The Healing Place of Wake County is naming one of its buildings in honor of Larry Zieverink Sr., chairman of the Wake County board of the North Carolina Alcohol Beverage Control Commission.
Zieverink, a former Wake County commissioner, is an honorary lifetime member of the Wake County Human Services board and a founder of The Men’s Christian Fellowship Home in Raleigh.
He is receiving the honor for “the compassion and leadership he has exhibited for many years on behalf of addicts and alcoholics in Wake County,” says Fred Barber, founding chairman of The Healing Place board.
The nonprofit Healing Place provides a homeless shelter, non-medical detoxification center and a recovery program for up to 180 men in Wake County.
