Bobby Brown is opening a domestic violence shelter in Atlanta dedicated to his late daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, a source confirms to Us Weekly.

Bill Edwards, the mayor of city South Fulton, will present the “Every Little Step” singer, 49, with an official proclamation on Monday, July 30, the insider reveals.

The facility, named the Bobbi Kristina Brown Serenity House, will have a 24-hour crisis intervention line and will serve as an emergency transitional shelter. It will also be the first building established under the Bobbi Kristina Brown Serenity non-profit organization.

The announcement comes three years after Bobby Kristina tragically died. Six months before her passing, she was placed in a medically induced coma after being found unresponsive in a bathtub — eerily paralleling mother Whitney Houston’s February 2012 death — in her Atlanta home. Bobby Kristina’s boyfriend Nick Gordon was ruled “legally responsible” in her death and her estate filed a $50 million wrongful death lawsuit against him.

The Grammy winner honored his late daughter’s legacy during a February interview with Us. “She was a beautiful young lady and what she wanted to do with her life, I wish everybody could have seen,” he said at the time. “Music, entertainment. She was better than me. She was better than her mother.”

Back in March, Bobby hosted the Celebration of Serenity Gala to raise funds for the rehab center, which will raise awareness about domestic violence and help victims. “I just think people should be aware that they have some place to go,” he told Us. “When you are going through bad times and when you are going through being abused, Bobbi Kristina’s Serenity House is there for you. That’s the easiest way I can say it. It’s too much. Too many women and too many men are being hurt by this disease that people have, abusing people. It’s just not right. I need to do something about it.”


Bobby Brown to Build Domestic Violence Shelter to Honor Late Daughter Bobbi Kristina

On the three-year anniversary of daughter Bobbi Kristina‘s death, Bobby Brown has announced his intent to expand the Bobbi Kristina Serenity House.

After creating the non-profit in 2015, the singer will move forward with official plans to construct a physical building in honor of his late daughter, who died in 2015 at age 22.

The New Edition member, 49, will receive a proclamation from South Fulton, Georgia, Mayor Bill Edwards on Monday to build a domestic violence shelter in memory of Bobbi Kristina, his only child with late singer Whitney Houston.

“Our family lives with the pain every day of losing my beautiful daughter, Bobbi Kristina, to domestic violence,” Brown said in a statement obtained by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

“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,” his statement concluded.

When Bobbi Kristina was 18, her mother was found dead in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton on Feb. 11, 2012.

Three years later, on Jan. 31, 2015, Bobbi Kristina, then 21, was found face down and unconscious in a bathtub of freezing cold water in her home in Roswell, Georgia. She suffered irreversible brain damage and six months in a coma as a result of the incident. Bobbi Kristina died in hospice three years ago Thursday, on July 26, 2015.

Suspicions soon fell on her boyfriend Nick Gordon, whom Bobbi Kristina’s housemate, Max Lomas, had been seen arguing with her earlier in the night she was found unconscious.

Gordon was found liable for her death in November 2016 and was ordered to pay $36 million to her estate.
