HomewardBound Announces Family Center Project
KREX News Room
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. On Thursday evening members of the community were invited to hear the future plans of HomewardBound and its proposed Family Center.
This new facility will be designed to accommodate up to 25 families and 40 single women. The goal is to provide a safe and improved environment for the children of these families.
The Family Center will also be known as a resource space, which will provide better access to services from other community partners.
Douglas Karl, executive director of HomewardBound of the Grand Valley, said, "We can do intake, assessment and then those partners can work with us in that facility, so that these folks are not headed all over different parts of town. This center really has a family center concept so that we'll also have mental health, physical health, job related center and then medical respite care as well."
Officials also discussed renovations they plan to make at the current North Avenue shelter, including restroom renovations and improved energy efficiency.
