The building will erect in Atlanta, Georgia.
Bobby Brown is planning to have a shelter built in honor of his late daughter, Bobbi Kristina. The shelter will help serve community members who are victims of domestic violence as Kristina was before her death. The building will be named “The Bobbi Kristina Brown Serenity Shelter”
The mayor of South Fulton, Bill Edwards, along with other city officials are presenting Bobby Brown and his current wife, Alicia Etheredge, with a proclamation that acknowledges the future construction of the shelter. The Bobbi Kristina Brown Serenity Shelter will house victims of domestic abuse while extending other services, including a 24-hour crisis intervention line and an emergency transitional shelter.
The shelter is meant to prevent others from suffering the same fate as Bobbi Kristina. The young woman passed away in 2015. Her body was found in a bathtub, in a similar fashion to her late mother, Whitney Houston. She died at the age of 22 after being in a coma for two months. Her mother Whitney had died on the eve of the 2012 Grammy Awards.
Kristina’s ex-boyfriend, Nick Gordon, was identified as the responsible party for her death, being found guilty in a wrongful death lawsuit. He has been ordered to pay Bobbi Kristina’s estate a compensation of $36 million.
