The homeless shelter in Iowa has a $1 million dollar donation in its coffers.
The Shelters and Referral Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
“It’s our job to help people with physical and mental health challenges, as well as those who are living in poverty,” said Shelters & Referral Coordinator, Karen D. Hegarty.
“The Shelter and Referrer Center is dedicated to providing assistance to homeless people, including individuals living in shelters and transitional housing, as we work to improve their lives.”
The shelter has about 150 beds for people in need.
Hegarty said they are doing everything they can to get the money to the shelter, including donating to the American Red Cross and donating to charity.
He said the money will be used to help keep the shelter operational and to hire staff.
