A new house in Taylorville is being built to help parents who have lost a child. The Hope House construction is continuing for the 1,600 square foot log cabin-style private retreat which sits on seven acres in rural Taylorville. This place will help Parents and Families who are experiencing loss to find encouragement, support, and peace. Monica Wamsley, one of the mothers involved with the building, says that it is about giving back to people who are grieving the loss of a child.
The Taylorville Chamber of Commerce held a pop-up business after hours at the Hope House on Thursday and Wamsley says she was happy that they were there to bring awareness to the Hope House. She says she is happy to have support from the community and others.
Wamsley says she hopes to have the building complete in 2023. To find out more information on the Hope House, visit www.hopehouseofcentralillinois.org.
