Shepherd's Home

The RC&D Councilís original involvement in this project came through the Valley County Commissioners who requested assistance to help the group establish an at-risk youth shelter. The County spends considerable funds to care for youth, which through no fault of their own, are in need of temporary shelter. 

Through an eighteen month period of intensive grant research and grant writing guided by the RC&D Staff and the groupís Executive Director, adequate funds were obtained to build a shelter to house up to 12 youth. Full time house parents and family style living eases troubled youth through this temporary shelter time. 

Currently, through training provided by the RC&D, the Group has established an operating endowment foundation and continues to improve its operation capability.
