DULUTH, MN — An organization supporting foster families in the Northland celebrated the opening of their new facility on Wednesday.
New Hope for Families held a ribbon-cutting.
The Benedictine Sisters gifted the old St. Anthony’s Community Center building to the organization.
The non-profit works to raise awareness and support for foster families.
They’ll use the new building for mentoring and tutoring classes and also to recruit others to join.
They hope to have twenty foster homes in Duluth by the end of 2019.
Therese Gruba adds, “New Hope for Families is working to raise public awareness by getting out and speaking to schools, churches, businesses and clubs about the critical need we have in St. Louis County for more Foster Care Homes.”
Starting in 2020, they plan to open a daycare for foster children and teens.
