Sheridan, Wyo. — Volunteers of America Northern Rockies announced today that it has received a $500,000 Daniels Fund grant to support the Life House, a $3.2 million substance abuse treatment facility for men in Sheridan, Wyo.
“This grant will enable us to break ground nearly a year ahead of schedule to take advantage of lower building costs,” said P.J. Treide, director of development at VOA. “This project will provide numerous employment opportunities as our community comes together to build a state-of-the-art facility to provide help and hope to men struggling with the burden of addiction.”
“For the past five years, the Daniels Fund has also provided key support to the Volunteers of America Northern Rockies Camp P.O.S.T.C.A.R.D., which serves hundreds of children throughout the state,” he explained. “We would not be able to do what we do without their support,” he added.
Bill Daniels, a pioneer in cable television known for his kindness and generosity to those in need, established the Daniels Fund to provide grants and scholarships in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming. For more information, please visit www.danielsfund.org.
