This is a bittersweet time for the Women’s Resource Center in Wenatchee.
The nonprofit is on the cusp of opening 15 homeless beds at the newly remodeled Parkside Manor to serve chronically homeless individuals, a challenging population to move into regular housing in the community. That’s the sweet part. The more difficult aspect is the current financial challenge. Earlier this year, the troubled Regional Support Network suddenly cut $85,000 in funding, which blew an $85,000 hole into the budget of Bruce Transitional Housing.
