New Grants Pass youth shelter to open Mid-June

hearts with a missionGrants Pass, Ore. — Work is continuing at the new Hearts with a Mission youth shelter in Grants Pass, however a few delays have postponed its opening.

The privately funded shelter will provide emergency and transitional housing for kids ages 10 through 17. At this point most of the demolition is done, and now they’re just awaiting permits.

“Everyone who’s been in construction understands that that doesn’t always go as fast as you’d like,” shelter coordinator Bruce Cox says, “we’ve pushed it back for about a week or two, and so June 15th is probably more of the reality of target date to open.”

The non-profit is still in need of funding as well as donations of things like light fixtures, door knobs, and sheet rock. If you’d like to help the shelter get up and running, click HERE.
