FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): The Shepherd’s House in Fort Wayne will be able to remain open, for at least another year.
Veteran Affairs Secretary David Shulkin says the organization, which acts as a shelter for homeless veterans, will be getting a one-year funding extension. However, Shepherd’s House says they have yet to receive any official word on funding, and expects to know more after a conference call on Monday afternoon.
Shulkin made the announcement Thursday, saying the extension would go to organizations that applied for grants but fell short of new program guidelines, and adding that it gives them time to improve their effectiveness before applying for funding next year.
