OWENSBORO, Ky. (WFIE) - In Owensboro, a cookout was held Friday to raise money for Empowerment Academy.

They’re working to build an 18 bed home for homeless high school students.

They’re hoping to be finished with construction by the end of the year.

They need $850,000 to finish the project. Right now, they’ve raised about $300,000.

They’ll be having a haunted house fundraiser this fall.
