Three years since establishing the Bobbi Kristina Serenity House, Bobby Brown has announced plans to begin construction on the property in memory of his late daughter.
On Monday, the Grammy Award-winner will receive a proclamation from South Fulton, Georgia, Mayor Bill Edwards to build a domestic violence shelter in memory of Bobbi Kristina.
According to a statement obtained by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Brown says the non-profit organization’s mission is to empower and educate men and women about domestic violence by creating a 24-hour crisis intervention, and an emergency transitional shelter.
“Our family lives with the pain every day of losing my beautiful daughter, Bobbi Kristina, to domestic violence,” the singer said in the statement. “She loved Atlanta and in her memory, we are proud to announce the formation of the Bobbi Kristina Serenity House. Our initial goal is to help educate women and men of all ages, by creating a 24-hour crisis intervention line and emergency transitional shelter.”
The domestic violence shelter will also provide access to referral services, and advocacy for social change with expert support services for victims and survivors of domestic violence.
Brown’s announcement coincides with the three year anniversary of Bobbi Kristina’s death, who was found unconscious in her Georgia home on Jan. 31, 2015. According to reports, she suffered from “irreversible brain damage,” which forced the then-21-year-old into a six-month coma before dying in hospice on July 26, 2015.
Bobbi Kristina’s ex-boyfriend Nick Gordon was later found liable for her death in November 2016 following the filing of a Wrongful Death Complaint by Bobby Brown. In the suit, Brown claimed Gordon was guilty of assault, battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress, as well as providing her with a “toxic cocktail.”
He was later ordered to pay $36 million to Bobbi Kristina’s estate.
