“Our goal is to use support services to ensure that people move quickly out of homelessness and into permanent housing. “We would like to thank our community partners deeply for their commitment to make this project a reality, as it will benefit so many of our weakest neighbors in need.

“The Magnolia is an inspiring example of how many groups and individuals come together to make a significant difference in our community,” said Laurie Hopkins, executive director of Shelter the Homeless.
