Serenity Home seeks help in finding future location
Thursday, April 05, 2018
The future location of Serenity Home Shelter has been in question since spring 2017. The Polk County Board of Supervisors voted to extend the county’s lease with the shelter for three years. After that time, the shelter will likely have to move. Currently, Serenity Home is located in the old Polk County Jail and can house 18 homeless men and women. The shelter opened in 2008 and is the only mass shelter in Polk County.
Serenity Home staff and advisory board members asked the public’s help in their effort to secure a new location, raise funds for the move and more. The group held a meeting February 5 at Serenity Home Shelter in Balsam Lake for anyone interested in helping.
