Emergency Services & Homeless Coalition Project Coordinator Jean Harden is reaching out to Historic City News readers asking for donations to help the residents of Hogans Harvest as they begin their rehabilitation program.
Hogans Harvest will complete construction of a 4-bedroom/2 bath house in West Augustine designated to house homeless ex-offenders coming out of prison. The facility is scheduled to open in June.
