CLAY CITY, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — A Place Called Hope, a home for homeless female veterans and women overcoming substance abuse issues, received a new metal roof on Tuesday with help from the American Legion of Brazil and volunteers from Step Back to Basics Outreach of Terre Haute.
“After having the home donated and then undergoing a $50,000 renovation, this just put the icing on the cake,” said Dan Chassie, Executive Director.
Chassie had stated on August 15, at the grand opening ceremony with Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch participating in the ribbon cutting, that the old roof needed to be replaced. At that event, a group representing the American Legion Post 2 of Brazil donated $3,000 to cover the cost of the metal.
Step Back to Basics Outreach, which helps homeless men and individuals entering back into society from incarceration, offered a group of 10 volunteer men who installed the new metal roof in one day.
