Gadsden County welcomes a new business
AngelCare With a Vision – An Assisted Living Facility opened December 11, 2018, in Chattahoochee, Florida.
AngelCare operates in three buildings on five acres and is located at 3577 Flat Creek Road. Owned by Tammy Ceasor, it employs five and boards six clients. AngelCare provides the services residents need while allowing them to remain close to home in the beautiful rural setting of Chattahoochee.
The Apalachee Regional Planning Council (ARPC) provided a working capital loan to AngelCare through their Revolving Loan Fund. The fund is financed by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration. It provides a source of capital for businesses in the Apalachee Region.
The Gadsden County Development Council (GCDC) hosted a holiday reception and open house on the 11th at AngelCare’s facility. ARPC presented AngelCare with a check at the reception/open house. In addition, the Gadsden Technical Institute (GTI) donated six electric medical beds to AngelCare.
