COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Columbus State University students are teaming up with Safehouse Ministries in hopes of opening an outpatient service program to combat substance abuse among other things.

The senior students are a part of the servant leadership program where the funds were raised as part of a class project.

So far, they have raised over $15,000.

"As the Servant Leadership Program at Columbus State University we go through a long process with all our seniors to figure out what do we want our Senior Project to be, how do we want to do our senior project, and talking with United Way, talking with so many different organizations we decided to pick Safe House," said Meagan Corcoran, CSU senior project organization leader.

This week was their wrap-up week for the project.

The organization leader says students have put in tons of hours for the project.
