We’re doing more than spring cleaning this week at our Wood River location. For the first time since opening our doors in 2007, we are knocking down walls, making room for our ever-growing services.
“When we first found this building ten years ago, we just knew it was the space for us to turn our vision into a reality,” said Executive Director, Tammy Iskarous. “Our goal was to always grow the services in this community, and with that, comes growing our space.”
Iskarous says a big reason why they need to expand their space is because Refuge just hired another therapist to their team and also need to make more room for their therapy services.
The new space will feature an updated data entry room for their volunteers and case managers, which will expand their client service space, a new therapy room for Refuge and a new office space.
The building houses Refuge, CASA, Youth Violence Prevention Program, Client Service Department and a training room for all the parenting classes – which is also occasionally used for other training classes.
The construction starts this Spring and is projected to be completed by this summer.
