Dorie's House Set to Close in Swift Current

Due to a lack of operational funding, Dorie's House is set for closure October 4 in Swift Current. Board Chair, Bob Hale indicates since the shelter opened in January it has assisted over 25 youth with over 500 bed stays to date. Despite the fact that youth couch surfing and homelessness is an issue in the community, Dorie's House has been unsuccessful in securing provincial or federal funding to cover its operational costs. Hale states he and his board will continue to try and find funding for this worthy facility.

Dorie's House was constructed through the generous support of local businesses and other suppliers in 2016 and is now set for closure due to a shortfall in operational funds.
