Every year approximately 600 children within a 100 miles radius of Taylorville pass away leaving the families and friends grieving while trying to find a light at the end of the tunnel. The Hope House is coming to Taylorville and while they realize things will never be the same for that family they are hoping to at least give them some time of peace.
Scott McClure is with the Hope House, he says they have recently started their capital campaign back up which was put on pause after the December 1st tornado.
McClure says their goal is to hit $350,000 in donations, this will cover all building expenses as well as get them through the first year of operations.
Michael St. Louis is helping with the building process he says realistically they are targeting next spring to have everything up and running for the Hope House.
McClure and St. Louis appeared as guests on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
