Because the whole community linked arms around a common goal, we were able to open the first long-term recovery program for women with children in Kootenai County. Over 300 people, including pastors, civic leaders and government officials, attended its dedication in August, and we welcomed our first guests in September.

Veterans Day
Students at Valley Christian School held their 21st annual special musical program to honor veterans at the Union Gospel Mission.
