One local charity is looking to expand their efforts after purchasing land south of Taylorville. The Hope House of Central Illinois completed the acquisition of seven acres of wooded land on January 5th.
Randy Thompson is one of the founders of The Hope House. He says the organization has big plans for the land.
The Hope House helps parents and families after the loss of a child. Thompson and his wife, along with the other two couples who helped create the organization have all lost children. He says the cabin to be built will be a place to get away for these families as they grieve.
