[NEWS] Construction of addiction recovery housing in Kensington stalled due to government shutdown

Funders and officials of Project HOME gathered in Kensington Tuesday for what was supposed to be the start of construction on the long-planned and desperately needed housing for people recovering from addiction.

There was just one glitch: the government shutdown.

The project to turn the old Willard Elementary School into 42 units of recovery housing — with education and job training — has been in the works for nearly five years, which Project HOME co-founder Sister Mary Scullion, said is not an unusual timeframe.
