The Shelter House received $2.6 million dollars in state funding from the I-Jobs program which will be used to expand its facilities from a 29 bed space facility in a converted residential home to a modern facility that will house up to 70 men, women, and children including veterans. The I-Jobs program is being funded through revenue generated from state casino tax revenues.
As a former board member of the organization, I salute the work and perseverance of Director Crissy Canganelli and Board president Dottie Persson and the dedicated board members former and present.
I am particularly proud that a life skills and job training program component will be integrated into the facilities thanks to generosity of Dale and Kay Prediger.
