"KALAMAZOO, MI—Loretta Bates, a women's support group leader at Ministry with Community, has waited 30 years for a bigger, better facility to serve Kalamazoo's underprivileged residents. On Thursday, the wait was over." (Kalamazoo Gazette)
Ministry with Community has been operating a day time shelter at its current location on Church Street in Kalamazoo for 30 years. But growing demand for their services has created the need for a new building.
"KALAMAZOO, MI -- Ministry with Community officials announced plans Tuesday to break ground this summer on a $6 million project that will include construction of a new facility. Officials also announced that the shelter received a $1 million challenge grant from the Bill and Julie Van Domelen Challenge." (MLive/Kalamazoo Gazette)
