Province pumps money into Upper Room Mission
A non-profit agency that helps residents in need is getting a boost.
The provincial government provided a $100,000 gaming grant to the Upper Room Mission Monday.
"It will go directly to client services," said Lisa Froom, mission general manager.
Among the outreach programs that will benefit are counselling and employment.
"People are eating here every day and they need help," said Eric Foster, Vernon-Monashee MLA, of the need for the funding.
