We would like to give a big, heartfelt thank you to the Good Neighbors Fund for their donation of $9,018.35 to Discovery House this year. Many nonprofit organizations in the Okoboji-Spirit Lake territory have benefitted from this fund over the years, and we are blessed again to be a recipient.

Due to the pandemic, our census has been down, but things are beginning to look up with the availability of vaccinations and mitigation efforts being reduced. We are currently serving five residents at Discovery House and three residents at Daniel House.

Our goal is, and always has been, to provide a safe, supportive, Christian environment for the homeless and those recovering from addictions. Residents receive counseling and tools to begin to build a new foundation for a better life.

Once again, we are grateful for the support of our neighbors this year.

Blessings,

Julie Scheib, Director

Discovery House, Inc.
