We had a lot of great people and organizations at the groundbreaking for the new wellness center. Mayor Hillary Schieve gave a great speech along with Stacie Mathewson, who donated $1.9 million to HOPES for the new building. Also Mary Skau from Senator Harry Reid’s office, Katie Pace from Senator Dean Heller’s office and Kenneth Brooke from Congressman Mark Amodei’s office all gave proclamations congratulating HOPES on the groundbreaking.
