Redmond Shepherd's House Holds Fundraiser Launch

REDMOND, OR -- The Shepherd’s House Redmond Campus is holding a “Celebrating Progress” event Wednesday. Development Director Dave Notari tells KBND News Shepherd’s House Ministries is at almost 90% of the $3.5 million fundraising goal, thanks to grants and private donations, “We’re really hoping that the Redmond community and beyond are willing to help step in and fund the remainder of this project. And so, our goal as we have this celebration event is to make that information known.”

The South Highway 97 location will be the only low-barrier homeless shelter in the city, it will be operational year-round, rather than seasonally. “The new Redmond campus will be serving 44 men, women, and children who are experiencing homelessness, and providing relevant services to them including housing, food, and clothes, as well as some case management,” Notari says the hope is for Shepherd’s House Redmond Campus this Fall, “That really all depends on the fundraising for the remaining 400 thousand. Now we’re really reaching out to the Redmond community, and the Bend community, and the greater Central Oregon community to say ‘hey we really need your help to finish this out’.”

Elected officials and Shepherd’s House board members will be on hand at the celebration event that begins at 4 P M Wednesday at the Redmond Shepherd House on South Highway 97.
