Aurora House Doubles Capacity
In the fall of 2014 Aurora House received an anonymous donation which included a stipulation that 4 patient rooms be added. During the previous year Aurora House had been forced to turn away nearly 100 patients due to lack of beds and staff to take care of them.
Knowing the challenge was daunting, some friends of Aurora House came together to launch an aggressive two month expansion campaign to jumpstart this important project.
By no means is it the end of funding needs for Aurora House, but the Mid-Valley Community responded admirably to help the Board furnish the patient rooms; pay off remaining construction costs; and assist with the initial staffing requirements.
Serving on the expansion committee were: Raul Cabaza, chair; Loretta Barbee, Charles Bell, Lynn Carter, Trainor Evans, Rhonda Garza, and Debby Rektorik. Thanks to all the many donors and volunteers who assisted to make this a successful campaign.
Funding is still needed. Estimated cost is $250,000 to accomplish all these goals.
