“The ground is broken, but the project is not done. We have a building to build, money to raise and we need help from you,” said Donna Humphrey, co-founder and director of development for Blessing House, a faith-based, nonprofit children’s crisis care center in Lorain. “It’s not what we’ve done, it’s what you’ve done. This is part of God’s project of hope.”
A large crowd gathered on June 26 behind St. Vincent de Paul Parish in Elyria Township for the groundbreaking of the new, 16,700-square-foot facility. The groundbreaking ceremony culminated a three-year, community-driven planning process. Star Builders Inc. is the general contractor.
