River House buys land for new shelter
River House Shelter and Domestic Crisis has purchased property upon which to build a new shelter.
The property on North Down River Road in Grayling is a perfect location for the shelter, according to Rhoda Hacker, director, because it is easily accessible to all resources in the community.
River House is working with Riebschleger & O'Brien Architects, P.C., Houghton Lake, in the design of the building. It is expected that the shelter should be completed sometime in the fall, Hacker said. At the new site, River House will offer the same services it does now, including a 24-hour crisis line, domestic violence advocacy and sexual assault services. In addition, the facility will house eight more beds to provide a safe haven to victims of domestic and sexual violence and homeless women and children. Contact River House with any questions at (989) 348-3169.
