Ashby House Expansion Ribbon Cutting
On January 25, 2023, at 10am, New Morning supporters from all over the region joined together to celebrate the Ribbon Cutting of the expansion at the Ashby House in Placerville.
This effort was led by HomeAid Sacramento with financial help from the Marshall Foundation. Landmark Builders and a big list of other vendors completed the expansion at the Ashby House and were able to achieve a 65% in-kind donation rate, saving New Morning nearly $200,000.
Short speeches were made by the Executive Director of HomeAid, Amber Celmer, and the President of the New Morning Board of Directors, Gabrielle Marchini. Tours of the space were provided.
The new space is a 400 square foot addition to the children’s shelter that includes a learning center, a private conference room and extensive storage space. In the learning center, children have access to individual study cubbies where they can focus while doing online school and homework. The private conference room will allow space for support groups, child and family team meetings, and comfortable family visits.
